Walking

Bike Walk San Diego District 2 hopes to create a more pedestrian friendly city that provides safe, comfortable walking facilities so all people can enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle. As our city grows and becomes more densely populated, proper, functional facilities need to be robust, safe and utilitarian for all users.

Our Goals:

  • Improve the “Quality of Life” in Our Communities
  • Promote Healthy, Walkable Communities
  • Create Safety for All Ages and Abilities
  • Focus on Youth Safety around Schools, Parks and Neighborhoods
  • Provide Safe Access to Beaches, Bays and Parks
  • Promote Local Economic Activity with Walk-Safe Business Districts
  • Encourage Design of Complete Streets
  • Support Vision Zero

National Walking Day

The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day.  The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk.  Wear your sneakers (or take them with you) to work, and at some point in the day, you are encouraged to take a 30-minute walk.

Turns Out, Walking To Work Is Also Healthy For A Retail Economy
