Join AARP Colorado for NeighborWalks. Enjoy guided walks through some of Denver’s most beautiful and interesting neighborhoods. Come meet others in your community, learn the history and join the fun. Walks will be led by a local historian.
The goal of NeighborWalks is to get more people walking every day for health, transportation, environment, and community. The walks are designed to be inclusive and are themed, educational and social events that bring neighbors together to explore neighborhoods and enjoy the city’s walking and pedestrian infrastructure, historic and cultural districts, parks and public spaces.
