On the Walkway, the support of our members is the driving force behind our dynamic calendar of family-friendly events, our volunteer Ambassador corps, our programs supporting area veterans and students, access to our electric tram, and so much more.  Members are the reason the Walkway is more than a park, it's a community.

In return for their generosity, we give our members incredible benefits to make the most of their Walkway experience, including:

  • Free admission to all days of Mayfest, Walktoberfest, Walkway Talks Lecture Series, and our entire calendar of Walkway at Night events
  • Advance purchase opportunities and discounted admission for special events including the sell-out July 4th Fireworks Spectacular
  • Free participation in the fun and educational Walkway Explorers program for members aged 12 and under.
  • Invitation to attend special VIP events like our Members Only Tour and Annual Meeting and Dinner
  • 10% discount on Walkway merchandise purchased at our pavilions or online at shop.walkway.org
