Leave at 6:15 p.m. sharp. I expect to finish about 8:30 p.m. Stop for coffee or supper after for those who are interested.
Walkability refers to how inviting a city is to walkers, shoppers, visitors, workers, and residents. If a city isn’t walkable, people don’t want to get out of their cars and shop. They stop coming downtown and downtown dies. Physical security from crime and from personal injury, creating visual interest, and destinations are some of the more important elements of walkability. The elements of walkability do not happen by accident. They are part of a larger plan.
We are going to focus on each element separately because sometimes it is easier to understand the whole if you look at it piece by piece. Once you can see the pieces, your mind can integrate and appreciate the whole in a more meaningful way.
Bring your cameras and your sense of adventure.
The Downtown Hike Series is a series of hikes that is intended to introduce you to a downtown Greenville you may not know and focuses on art, fountains, buildings, gardens, and other places of interest that make walking more interesting.
