Walk Description: Welcome to the Monday morning walk at Walsh Manor and Walsh Annex! This walk is in partnership with the Denver Housing Authority and takes residents, neighbors, and newcomers on a fun and casual walk through parts of Denvers’ Ruby Hill and Athmar Park neighborhoods. The walking route (usually!) leaves Walsh Manor 5-10 minutes after 11:00 am, stops by Athmar Park Branch Library and heads to Huston Lake Park. The walk will return to Walsh Manor after a small break at the park. You should plan to arrive back to the starting location at 12:00-12:30 pm. Please come very flexible as many of our participants are on wheelchairs or use walkers. This is generally a gentle paced walk traveling 1-2 miles per hour.
Walking Movement Leader: Phyllis (pictured front center) and Greg (backwards had/striped shirt) have been Walking Movement Leader with Walk2Connect for over a year and they are wonderful hosts! She can only be reached by phone, so please feel free to call her with questions.
Schedule and Nearby Transit: Meet just outside the main entrance of Walsh Manor which is the tall apartment building on the South side of W Mosier Place. Plan to leave around 11:05-11:10. Please be flexible with the leaving and finishing time. Bus 11 and 14 stop just a block (or right in front of) the starting location.
– Dogs are allowed on this one but please be sure they are well-behaved and on a short leash. No retractable leashes please.
– Accessibility: If you’re on a stroller or wheelchair, keep in mind the sidewalks are cracked and bumpy. We can adapt the route so you are with our group on quieter neighborhood streets. Phyliss has a lot of experience navigating this area, so please feel encouraged to join!
– Wear/Bring: comfortable socks & clothing (pref. non-cotton!), snacks and water, gloves/scarf, head cap if cool outside, and sunglasses/sunscreen.
– Restrooms are available at Walsh Manor; however, we strongly advise that you use the restroom before joining.
– Cancellation Policy: These walks are often canceled due to weather and other circumstances. Please get in touch with Phyliss if you are concerned about the walk being canceled.
