It is with huge thanks to our friends and partners for supporting our Ludlam Hikes activation event! More than 60 hikers from around the community joined in a for a 4 mile hike starting from AD Barnes Park to 8th street and back. Along the route, community members participated in installing Walk Your City signs which pointed towards near by schools, parks and other popular destinations.
Before the hike began, members or FOLT provided updates to the the hikers regarding the status of the campaign. In addition, Kate Kraft, Executive Director of America Walks gave an overview of the Walking movement, and explained how walking initiatives are sprouting all over the country. The Ludlam Trail is sure to be an amazing community asset that will help keep people safe as they travel to the numerous destinations that are in walking/biking distance of the trail. Many thanks to The Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge for sponsoring this event.
