Q: Where is the walk located inside Kendall Indian Hammocks Park?

A: The easiest way to find the walk is by entering at the park's west entrance located on SW 117th Ave and SW 79th Street. The walk is held at Shelter's 3, 4, and 5. 

Q: Where is the best place to park? 

A: Limited parking is available in front of the Shelter, mainly for those participants with handicap permits. There are parking areas throughout the park, but the closest largest parking area is located in the grass on the corner of SW 114 Ave and SW 80 Terr, inside the park. 

Q: I am a Sponsor/Community Partner that will be setting up, when can we come to set up and where do we go?

A: Sponsors and Community Partners are invited to bring their materials during two different times: Saturday, March 9th from 8pm to 8:30pm (we will have overnight security but do not suggest leaving any valuables overnight) or Sunday, March 10th from 6:30am to 7:30am. For both days, you can pull your vehicle up to Shelters 3, 4, and 5 to UNLOAD but there will be no parking in this space. It is only for 10 minute unloading. We ask that all our Sponsors and Community Partners be set up and ready to welcome participants by 8am. 

Q: We are walking in support of our family member who has special needs. Can we make a banner to walk? 

A: Of course!! We encourage you to make fun signs and banners identifying your team! Get creative! We love to see fun signs and banners on walk day!

Q: Are dogs allowed at the walk?

A: Dogs in general are allowed at Kendall Indian Hammocks Park. We ask that you please take caution and consider bringing your dogs this year because we have a petting zoo. In addition, some of our participants may be uncomfortable. If you choose to bring your dog, it must be on a leash and under your control at all times, and we ask that you please refrain from bringing your furry friend around the petting zoo area.
