Tips for a successful Walk Friendly Community Walkabout Nomination

Take a look at the WalkArlington Walkabouts brochure (PDF, 11 MB, Adobe Reader required) and individual neighborhood Walkabouts for examples of Walkabout routes and maps.

Competitive nominations will include the following:

  • Collaboration between neighborhoods (you can enhance strengths and overcome any weaknesses by partnering with an adjacent neighborhood to develop your route)
  • Tie-in your Walkabout event with an existing event (piggybacking on a previously planned event is a good strategy for a successful Walkabout)
  • Creative ideas for reaching new/diverse audiences (such as kids, families, “twenty-somethings,” English as a Second Language speakers, seniors, new residents, daytime/work population)
  • Demonstrated willingness/ability to involve entire community – residents, schools, retailers, businesses, restaurants, etc.— in planning and carrying out the Walkabout
