Witness history in the making as we take an urban hike through Byrd Park and Monument Avenue.

We’ve all seen the images on TV. This Sunday you can see them in person and get some exercise at the same time. Starting from Pump House Park, we’ll meander through the woods up to the Carillon, search for Columbus in Byrd Park, continue up Arthur Ashe Boulevard, and head east along Monument Avenue.

This isn’t a protest or demonstration, and I know this is a sensitive issue for many. Friendly discussion is welcome, but let’s try to resist the temptation to bring politics into it. Also, I suspect things will be calm on a Sunday morning.
