Join AARP Colorado for NeighborWalks. Enjoy guided walks through some beautiful and interesting neighborhoods. Come meet others in your community, learn the history and join the fun. Walks will be led by a local historian.
The goal of NeighborWalks is to get more people walking every day for health, transportation, environment, and community. The walks are designed to be inclusive and are themed, educational and social events that bring neighbors together to explore neighborhoods and enjoy the cities walking and pedestrian infrastructure, historic and cultural districts, parks and public spaces.
Highlands Tour - Once a separate city from Denver, Highlands was built to occupy the high ground in the area, placing it above the pollution of industry from the neighbor in the valley. It also occupied the moral high ground, with restrictive laws meant to ensure the upstanding behavior of its citizens. Though it would eventually succumb to Denver’s annexation, Highlands has retained much its elevated standing. Join us for an exploration of this desirable neighborhood, where history and modern infill meet.
Guests are welcome at this event, and pre-registration is required. Each attendee must register themselves and agree to the waiver of liability in order to participate in the walk.
