Walk & Talk: City Hall Park, Pioneer Square, and Occidental Square

Networking Event

Join a City Parks Alliance Board Member and fellow attendees on an informal walk to a local park. While this is not a guided tour of a specific park, it’s an opportunity to connect and learn more about City Parks Alliance, meet Alliance Board Members, and network with other Greater & Greener participants while getting some fresh air and seeing the local parks. 

Visit Pioneer Square, Seattle’s first neighborhood with a rich history, stretching from the earliest habitation of the native Duwamish and Suquamish people through the Gold Rush era to today’s version with its Renaissance Revival architecture. Occidental Park (aka Occidental Square) is at its heart as well as the adjacent City Hall Park. Get a sandwich or salad from The Stop or traditional Indigenous foods at the ʔálʔal Café (pronounced “all-all”) in addition to a diverse selection of fast-casual options along the route. The total distance for this walk is about 2 miles or about 22 minutes each way.

Please note: This is a rain-or-shine event unless there is inclement weather. Bring your reusable water bottle, sunscreen, and money for food.
