Luke McRedmond Centennial Walk set for Oct. 13
October 1, 2012 · 3:23 PM
The City of Redmond is partnering with Feet First, a nonprofit group dedicated to promoting the rights and interests of pedestrians and finding ways to encourage walking, for a Luke McRedmond Centennial Walk to explore the history of Redmond on at 2 p.m. on Oct. 13 at City Hall, at 15670 N.E. 85th St.
The event is free and people will be able to select between a 6.5-mile or 3.3-mile trail walk. The longer route will explore the Sammamish River Trail, Redmond/Puget Sound Energy Trail, Ashford Trail, Bear Creek Trail and a few hidden gems in the neighborhoods. The shorter walk will be concentrated in downtown. Walkers on both routes will have the opportunity to participate in a narrative tour of the downtown historical district, led by the Redmond Historical Society. The walks will end back at City Hall with lawn games and music from Proud Wonderful Me and The Foghorns.
The walk is family and dog-friendly and all ages and abilities are welcome. Redmond Mayor John Marchione will open the event with a few remarks and lead the start of the walk.
In addition, there will be five stations along the way with playing cards with historical or significant people and places in Redmond. At the end walkers can use their cards to play in a poker tournament.
