Community Route Audit for Safe Routes to Parks Macon

On Saturday, April 6th, get involved and share your thoughts about the ways we get to our parks in a one-day community route audit. From 9am to 12pm, groups of volunteers will walk and bike various routes linking neighborhoods and parks. Along the way, volunteers will make notes and answer questions about the routes. Are the sidewalks level? Is the route clearly visible? You’ll be the eyes of the community as we work to make it safer for people of all ages and abilities to access parks – all while you get some movement and fun in your day. Grab your bike or your walking shoes and join us! The first fifty volunteers will receive a Safe Routes to Parks Macon bag and sticker. Find details here.
