October + Walking + Pasadena = Walktober! – Pasadena Weekendr

Be the first to favourite this.

  The weather will cool down a bit any day now but still stay lovely, so it’s the perfect time to get out and walk during — as Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition (PasCSC) calls it — WALKTOBER. The organization has a healthy lineup up of events to help you do just that. This year events are a combination of guided in-person walks and self-guided walking tours. (Of course, due to the on-going pandemic, the activities are following COVID-19 safety protocols for the in-person walks.) Walktober is an annual national (and international) promotion to encourage walking, with communities from Pasadena to Portland, OR to Raleigh, NC, to Adelaide, Australia, organizing events. Here in Pasadena, PasCSC has partnered with local organizations and community members to put together a month-long calendar of more than 25 virtual and in-person walks, tours, and community events. The slate of events reflects a wide range of reasons and ways to enjoy this deeply human activity. Be it for everyday exercise, mental health, to meet new people, learn about the city, or simply to get to work or school, we hope to inspire Pasadenans by promoting and collaborating to provide something for just about everyone. Highlights include: • Secret staircase walk through Poppy Peak and Garvanza • Day of the Dead altar walk through the Playhouse District • Birdwalk through Hahamongna Watershed Park with an expert birder and naturalist • Early 20th century architecture walk through Madison Heights and Oak Knoll neighborhoods • Self-guided tour of the African American history of Pasadena • Self-guided walks showcasing public art and architecture in Old Pasadena alleyways, Caltech, Playhouse District, Sunset Avenue, Lake Avenue and more! • Online tour of Old Pasadena In keeping with the Complete Streets mission of “streets for everybody,” community members with impaired physical mobility are warmly
