    Accessibility Information

    The perimeter itself has inherent physical accessibility issues, but there are many potential paths to approach it, with different segments having varying degrees of accessibility challenges. Please get in touch if you have any specific questions or concerns.

    The walk offers options for participants who only want to walk a half day or a few miles, with different segments having varying frequency of access to public transportation or ease of rideshare pickup. Future iterations of the walk may have additional accessibility resources.

    A sustained pace of ~2 miles per hour is expected with breaks.
    (For comparison, Google Maps estimates a ~2.8 mph pace for walking directions)

    The virtual launch event (Sept 8 via zoom) and in-person closing celebration (Oct 1 at Cherry Street Pier) do not require any walking – register for those two events via Fringearts.
    $15 - $50
