Spring Walk Schedule

Join Waltham Walks to get outside and get moving this spring! Our 2019 program kicked off recently on Waltham Common. Anyone can join a walk and it’s free! Meet others and explore¬†Waltham’s neighborhoods. Please see our Waltham Walks Schedule¬†(revised May 1). New walks will be added through the summer. No sign-up needed, just show up ready to go and dressed for the weather. Don’t forget your water bottle! Walks are held rain or shine except in the case of extreme weather conditions.

Interested in leading a walk? Please contact Stacey at stacey@healthy-waltham.org. Sponsored by Healthy Waltham and the Waltham Recreation Department. Looking for more walking opportunities? Check out the Waltham Land Trust and OutdoorsRX for more walks.
