The City of SeaTac recently published a Walking Map, meant for anyone who resides, works or visits the city to “get them to connect to the community, live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy local businesses, parks and amenities,” according to a press release.
“We are committed to making it easier to walk and explore,” said Todd Cutts, city manager. “SeaTac’s Neighborhood Sidewalk Program is building a network of sidewalks and paths creating access to schools, transit and trails. This new map helps discover access to healthy living whether you are walking to a local park or to the corner store.”
The SeaTac Walking Map is available online here (PDF file), as well as at City Hall, the Community Center and the Seattle Southside Visitors Center. The map was made possible by a grant from Public Health – Seattle & King County’s Communities Putting Prevention to Work program.
