Welcome to WalkArlington

WalkArlington is an initiative of Arlington County, Virginia, where people have many options for moving about their community. WalkArlington's focus is on walking. By partnering with citizens, businesses, and County departments to promote the health, environmental, commuter, financial, and community-building benefits of walking, WalkArlington strives to "get more people walking more of the time."

Shorter days and longer nights mean we’ll be commuting in the dark more often in the coming months. That also means it’s more important than ever to be a PAL when you’re getting around Arlington before sunrise and after sunset.

Whether on two feet, two wheels or four wheels, everyone needs to be a PAL to share our streets safely.

Ideas And Inspirations From Walk Friendly Communities

The Walk Friendly Communities initiative, a national recognition program that encourages cities and towns across the United States to prioritize walkability, just released its inaugural program guide. Entitled “Giving Cities Legs: Ideas and Inspirations from Walk FriendlyGiving Cities Legs Book Communities“ (PDF, 3.8 MB) and published by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, the guide showcases some of the best practices of Walk Friendly Communities like Arlington so that other communities can learn from our experiences.

Take a look, see how our Gold-Level Walk Friendly Community compares to other cities that have received this prestigious recognition, and draw inspiration from the impressive examples of how communities nationwide are walking the walk toward walkability for all!
