Walk My Street

Walk My Street Checklist

How walkable is your street? Follow these steps to do a ‘walkability’ check of your street, or where you walk*.

This checklist will help you to see what your streets already have in place and whether there are any improvements that need to be made. Click ‘Yes’ on any statements that apply, and rate the quality out of 5 stars. Your information will be used to help advocate for improvements in the walking network.

If you would prefer to print off the ‘Walk My Street’ checklist, you can find the information here.
