Walk With Us To The Farmers’ Market

community walk 2011The West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance is organizing its third annual Walk to the Farmers’ Market on Saturday May 5 to mark the opening of the market for the season.

This free family-friendly walk is open to people of all ages, and those in wheelchairs and strollers as well. We will meet in the Maurice Hawk School parking lot at the back of the school, and start strolling at 9 a.m.; please arrive by 8:50 a.m. so we can leave on time.  Our mile-long route will take us to Berrien Avenue on the school path, and then down Berrien to Alexander Road.  We will then cross Alexander Road by the Arts Center and turn left onto the new sidewalk constructed last summer with the help of a Safe Routes to Transit grant obtained by West Windsor Township.  We will cross Wallace Road and continue up over the roundabout and along more of the sidewalk along Alexander Road,  including a key portion installed last year, to Vaughn Drive, where we will turn right and proceed to the Farmers’ Market.

Children of all ages will be challenged by a game of “I Spy” along the way.

We’ll follow a different route back to the Hawk parking lot for those who are interested.
