About us.

Welcome to Whimsy Walks, where we encourage you to get some exercise and fall in love with your neighborhood at the same time! During the pandemic many of us discovered, or rediscovered, the joys of a stroll around block. Occasionally we found beautiful, or inspired, or just plain cool items in the front or side yard of a home: a sculpture garden, an interesting collection of objects or an especially lovely tree. Whimsy Walks is dedicated to helping connect people to the magic that’s all around us. The sites listed below, clustered in the Ravenna, U District, Maple Leaf, Roosevelt and Green Lake neighborhoods, represent but a fraction of the noteworthy attractions of our community, a first version of a list that we hope will grow over the years. We invite you to get out and explore them, and let us know if you find other worthy places!
