February Walk with the Mayor!


In February, join Mayor Ted Winterer, Adopt-A-Walk and Santa Monica Spoke on a one-mile walk, through the neighborhood. The loop walk will leave from Reed Park–the corner of California Ave and Lincoln Blvd– at 10 am. This is a great opportunity to meet other walkers, learn about Adopt-A-Walk, Santa Monica Spoke and discuss the community with the Mayor and city staff.

Bring good walking shoes and a water bottle. Children should be in strollers or capable of walking the route, and DOGS ARE WELCOME!
