Seniors Walking

Join us on Saturdays in September for Downtown Walking Tours in collaboration with the Colorado Springs YMCA. Downtown Walking Tours* are hour-long guided tours introducing the historic landmarks, contemporary artwork, and cultural highlights of Downtown Colorado Springs. The walks are designed to be inclusive and are themed, educational, social events that can bring communities together in a healthy and fun environment.

Tours will begin at the Downtown YMCA. Space is limited for each tour.
