The Healthy Places Program at Columbus Public Health creates walking maps for Columbus Neighborhoods throughout the city to identify safe walking routes and add more physical activity to everyday life.

New walking maps are created every year in partnership with the  Mayor's Neighborhood Pride Program with the help of residents, block watches, civic associations, and area commissions in each neighborhood.  Printed copies of maps are available at libraries and recreation centers nearest to each neighborhood.
