WalkBoston makes walking safer and easier in Massachusetts to encourage better health, a cleaner environment and more vibrant communities.
At WalkBoston, we know that walking improves personal, economic, environmental and civic health. Working on walking takes us across Massachusetts to empower people with knowledge and proven strategies to make their own communities more walkable.
We help people evaluate the walking environment, develop plans to improve walking conditions, and encourage walking activities. We engage concerned residents, community groups, municipal staff, and state agencies in our efforts. Our focus areas define the content of our work and provide a structure that guides our efforts.
