2012 Location Information
Stroll Through Historic Olde Towne!
The walk route will take you and your canine companion on a mile-and-a-half trip through time. Starting from historic Market Square, we will stroll down King Street to South Union Street and Marina Park. We will then head west on Wilkes Street and take South Royal Street north, passing Gadsby's Tavern and then head east on Princess Street. We will then follow the walking path through Founders Park and along the river.
From the park, we will have a great view of the Potomac River and the Torpedo Factory Art Center before strolling up King Street and through the heart of Olde Towne. Walkers will pass historic Ramsay House and finish back at Market Square. George Washington himself could not have designed a more picturesque course!
