Walk with the Mayor a Success

On what was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett joined over 40 local residents, business owners, and political figures in walking around the Garden District this past weekend.  As part of the Mayor’s “Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days” program to highlight the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle, the group toured the area around the community garden and into the residential area on either side of Howell Ave.

Getting out and walking your neighborhood is always a great way to see things you would normally miss, and it’s nice to see the Mayor encouraging our neighbors to do the same.  If you would like to walk the Green Corridor and Garden District area, check out the interactive Green Corridor map before heading out – Green Corridor map.
