How “Walkable” Is Your Neighborhood?
I recently “ran” across this fun website called Walk Score. You can type in any city and state in the Puget Sound or the United States to determine it’s “walk score,” or how walk friendly the city is. Kent, Washington is rated a 49. Our most walkable zip code is 98030. You can also look up Covington, Maple Valley, Black Diamond, Auburn, Seattle, Bellevue, Renton, Federal Way and more.
What makes a neighborhood walkable? Several factors including people, parks and public space, pedestrian bridges, schools and more.
