Walk the Beautiful Olmos Park Neighborhood

Needs a location

We will start meeting at 6:15 and cross McCullough to start the walk at 6:30 sharp. We meet right under the sign in the picture. We will walk at a medium pace (16-17 minute mile) approximately 4 miles around the neighborhood. There are pretty older homes with beautiful landscaping and architecture here. The streets are canopied with shade from lots of mature trees and there is minimal traffic in this neighborhood.

The walk has lots of twists and turns so it is important to stay with the group. Please make sure you are able to keep this pace.. These are private residences so please be courteous of peoples property.
