West Centralites don’t just mouth platitudes about walking. They do it! The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette recently contained an article about the “walkability” factor of our neighborhoods. West Central was No. 1 with a score of 72; something that probably doesn’t surprise any of us who live here. We can look outside any season of the year, and, odds are, we will see neighbors and residents walking their pets, strolling around taking in the magnificent architecture, or visiting with friends and neighbors.
As the weather warms, West Central comes alive with bikers, joggers, and walkers – and plenty of four-legged companions. Our neighborhood not only enjoys “walkability” kudos within its residential area but also in its proximity to downtown. We have access to many quality restaurants and gathering spots, historical buildings, houses of worship, well-kept parks, and a myriad of events – theatrical, sporting, musical, and educational – from which to choose.
As you scan the list of neighborhoods with their walkability scores, notice that it is those in our urban core that have the highest in ranking. Subdivisions just don’t cut it when it comes to amenities within walking distance. Just one more reason to make West Central and our urban core your destination of choice.
