9 In ’09 Great Walks

Walkability is one of the indicators of a great public space. That’s why Omaha by Design’s volunteer Place Game facilitators have compiled a list of nine great walks. Located throughout the city, the list takes walkers through a mix of urban environments, from park settings to historic and cultural areas. The walks vary in length and include points of interest along the route.
