NEW Walk Tacoma Downtown Walking Maps Now Available!

Interested in walking Tacoma's downtown? Downtown: On the Go!'s 5 new downtown walking maps will get you out and active while showing the many different sides of the South Sound's urban hub.

Branded as Walk Tacoma, each of the 5 routes takes the pedestrian on an interpretive tour of 8-10 sites. Even veteran Tacomans will discover something new as each map blends information on major landmarks and hidden gems. Routes average 1.5 miles in length, range in difficulty, and include estimates for calories burned.

How did the Walk Tacoma maps come about? In early 2010, Downtown: On the Go! convened a group of stakeholders within the downtown community to create downtown focused walking maps. The goals for these maps included: incentivizing walking as a healthy lunchtime activity, encouraging awareness of walkable distances, and cultivating an appreciation of Tacoma’s rich past, present, and future.

The Walk Tacoma maps were then designed by talented students from Pacific Lutheran University’s Design Team, and generously printed by MultiCare’s Center for Healthy Living.
