This group is for day walkers who want to get up, get outside and move! Not for the casual walker, but those that want to move their booty and explore the city, the waterfront and neighborhoods all at the same time. Three mile walks are preferred. I started this group because I'm new to Tacoma and want to make new friends, walk and explore the city. All body types are welcome: short, fat, tall or skinny. Whether you are in shape or like me, out of shape, dust off your shoes and come join us.

Weyerhaeuser Mansion Walk

4224 N Mason Ave

Find a parking spot near 4224 N. Mason Ave. (We will meet on the corner of Mason and 43rd--across the street from the mansion). This is a little over 3 mile walk that starts down Mason. We turn left on Madrona and make a loop back up until we pass the mansion, cross the street, and turn right onto Stevens. Expect an amazing view of the sound and Vashon Island for a few minutes as we go down the hill and around to Verde. Left on Verde until we make another left at the Bethany church. Right on Stevens again, and we'll walk all the way down and through the roundabout (there are crosswalks). Then we turn right on 36th, right on Verde, left on 37th, left on Gove, left on 36th, left on Cheyenne, right on 37th until we cross the roundabout twice. Now we're by the water again. We walk along until we go through the hedge, and turn left on Madrona. Right on Stevens, right on 42nd, and left on Mason. Now we're back at the mansion, but we take one more stroll around the block (left on Stevens, left, then left again), and we're back at our cars with 3 miles under our belts. Whew. (Wipes brow)

Let's Walk Schuster Parkway from Chinese Garden!

Chinese Reconciliation Park

*** Be sure to RSVP if coming, and if you cannot make it, please change your RSVP to a NO since we wait for everyone before we start walking. Thank you!*** We try hard to all arrive at 9:15 a.m. and start walking as soon as all the RSVP ladies have arrived or at 9:22 a.m. whichever comes first. We walk about 3 1/4 miles from the parking lot and back again. For security reasons, be sure to put anything of importance in the trunk of your car before leaving home, not when arriving at the parking lot. Hope to see you there.
