New City Web Site Promotes Walking In And Around Seattle

Encore - A Seattle.gov web site for people 50+

Aging and Disability Services, a division of the Seattle Human Services Department, has partnered with the City’s Department of Information Technology to establish a new website to promote walking organizations, events, and resources for all ages, and especially for older adults.

The website, part of Encore, Seattle’s Web portal for people age 50+,  includes links to local walks and hikes, neighborhood walking maps walking events, and volunteer opportunities like shelter dog walking as well as a selection of 5Ks and 10Ks by month.

Encore provides older adults with access to thousands of resources, such as Lifelong Recreation, Volkssport, Work & Money, Arts & Recreation, and Health & Fitness.
