AARP Walk Audit Worksheets
Download our free printable, fillable, shareable forms and checklists for taking notes and making observations about a street or area's safe walkability
The AARP Walk Audit Worksheets are easy to print from home, easy to complete, and easy to use by anyone who wants to make their community more livable and pedestrian-friendly for people of all ages. Each worksheet can be used on its own or in combination with other worksheets. Each can be printed anew for observing a different street or block.
Share your walk audit findings with local leaders, elected officials and members of civic organizations and neighborhood groups. Advocate for changes that will address the most egregious problems and be of benefit to the community. See page 18 of the AARP Walk Audit Tool Kit for information about reporting results and proposing solutions.
Take a Look at Trails
In some communities, residents get around by using pathways that are open to pedestrians, cyclists and certain low-speed motorized vehicles. See the AARP Walk Audit Worksheets for Multiuse Paths and Trails.
A walk audit can occur in a single-location or along a route between destinations (aka a mobile walk audit).
We encourage printing, photocopying and sharing the worksheets so numerous walk auditors — working solo or as part of a team — can observe and document the safety of a community's streets and sidewalks.
This page includes links for downloading individual worksheets as well as for downloading the complete 11-worksheet collection.
