The Walking Detective™

With The Walking Detective™, kids can conduct walking audits to find clues and collect evidence to show how walkable their communities are. They can build a case report to show city officials what things are working well and what things need to be improved.

A scoring guide helps them evaluate sidewalks, crosswalks, traffic, safety and amenities like parks and benches. They gather evidence by taking photos, drawing pictures and maps, and making notes, then put their findings in a letter to their city leaders.
