Everyone invited to safely enjoy new walking path connection ...

Walk-On Waukon wants everyone to safely enjoy the new walking path connection added on the south and west side of the Waukon City Park, completing a paved loop with the south and west trail entrances to the park with the new sidewalk that extends along the southernmost end of Second Street SW and then travels east along Eleventh Avenue SW in front of the Waukon Fire Station and beyond. Walk-On Waukon was planning for a community celebration walk in early May, but with the current pandemic situation limiting large gatherings is, instead, inviting everyone to enjoy this new stretch (or to walk their own favorite route in town) on their own whenever it works for them to do so. It is suggested that social distancing guidelines continue to be followed.

The new Walk-On Waukon sign pictured above near the connection point of the newly paved walkway (pictured to the right in the above photo) and the west walking trail entrance to the City Park recognizes donors for the new walking path connection. Walk-On Waukon has also received other donations and grants as well and plans to use them toward the next sidewalk addition. Walk-On Waukon is a volunteer group of community members with a goal to create inviting places for people to walk in Waukon. The group continues to raise funds for more walking path connections throughout town.
