Join us for Ranchos Walk 2019. We are planning the event now, so save the date. Check back soon for more information.

Take a walk through history and follow a crest trail that links Rancho Los Alamitos and Rancho Los Cerritos. The 9.4-mile scenic walk connects the CSULB campus, Reservoir Hill, Hilltop Park in Signal Hill, Longview Point at Willow Springs Park and Rancho Los Cerritos. There will also be 6-mile and 3.5mile options available. Shuttles will be provided.

JANE'S WALK
May
2
to May 5

JANE'S WALK

Held in early May each year, Jane’s Walk is an international celebration of walking and community honoring the legacy of Jane Jacobs, the writer and activist. These walks are community-lead, and meant to be shared experiences of discovery.

Walks are lead by and for the community. The idea is to get out there together and share an experience in the streets, to learn more about the neighborhood, share stories, and have fun.

LB WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK

Held in late March each year, this is the local version of National Walk to School Day.

Walk to School Week includes welcome tables at select elementary and K-8 schools across the city to promote safely walking to school both as quality time for parent/grandparents and the kids, as well as a personal wellness and community awareness activity.
