Walkabout Chronology

Photo: Walkers in Dark Star ParkWalkArlington mapped our first Walkabout of Clarendon in 2003, and we've been adding one or two new Walkabout routes each year ever since. Below is a chronological list of the Walkabouts in the order they were created.  While the routes stay the same, some of the sites along the way have changed, leading walkers to new discoveries and a new appreciation for what was.

If you happen upon something new or unexpected along your Walkabout route, please contact us so we can share your update with other walkers and incorporate the changes in future Walkabout maps.
