Project Overview

Physical and emotional health have a strong impact on individual wellbeing, and health plays a large role in allowing a community to thrive. The City of Santa Monica celebrates the joy and benefits of walking with the Walk Loop Project, a neighborhood-focused initiative to create walking loops throughout the city. Whether you are a casual stroller or walk enthusiast, these 1-mile walking loops aim to promote health and wellbeing, create opportunities for discovery and inspiration, and strengthen community connections.

In partnership with Adopt-A-Walk, the City’s first walking loop is being introduced in the Wilmont Neighborhood, it’s route beginning and ending at Reed Park and extending along the neighborhood’s tree-lined sidewalks, local shops, and park amenities. The Wilmont Walk Loop is a great place to take a deep breath, walk off some stress, and be active. Folks experiencing the walking loop for the first time can look for the standing sign at 7th/California to receive information about the project, see a map of the entire route, and orient themselves before starting their 1-mile trip.
