Announcing a new Meetup for South Sound Walkers Meetup Group!
What: UW Arboretum 10K Walk
When: Saturday, April 3,[masked]:00 AM
UW E-5 Parking Lot
Seattle, WA 98105
Here's another staffed volkssport walk. We're doing the meetup at 10am, but you can actually start your walk anytime between 9am and 1pm and finish by 4pm. There's a 5k option that isn't part of the meetup if you wish a shorter distance.
Walking by Husky stadium and the boathouse, you'll cross the Montlake bridge and go through some lovely old homes on your way to the arboretum. You walk through the arboretum which should be much in bloom by now, then down to Foster and Marsh Islands (no dogs allowed in the wildlife area of Marsh Island, but there's a bypass) before heading back by the History and Industry Museum and across the bridge back to the start.
This is an annual event held the Saturday before Easter. It starts at the E-5 parking lot behind the UW baseball fields and a little north of Husky Stadium. You'll need $2 to park before noon. You get there by taking 45th NE to 5 corners, and turning right on Mary Gates Memorial Way and right again on Clark Road. Follow the signs from there.
My daughter and I will be there with a Meetup sign at 10am. Be a little early to register then off we go.
