Map of Age-friendly Walks

We have compiled a map and list of outdoor walking locations in the City of Boston.

Outdoor walks are considered "age-friendly" because the City of Boston plows them in the winter. The paths are also smooth, free of stairs, and parking is nearby. You can view the map and list of locations below.
