Biking and Walking in Norwalk

The City of Norwalk, the Norwalk Health Department, and their many partners are working hard to make Norwalk a bike-friendly and pedestrian-friendly city. Cities that make their streets safe and appealing for walkers and cyclists by developing the infrastructure for active transportation can see benefits related to health, economics, and community cohesion.
