Again! Again! Aquatic Park & Lagoon Walk


Are you a job coach, employer, or family member of someone with an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD)? See the important Stanford research project below.

ALSO is offering copies of its new Compass Work Tool, a self-paced career management tool for neurodivergent adults, free for evaluation to AASCEND folks. Click here to request your copy!

We faced down February weather last year, and we’re doing it again! AASCEND is reprising last year’s friendly, sociable walk from San Francisco’s Marina Green to Aquatic Park, this year with a side loop to the Palace of Fine Arts lagoon, exotic site of a thousand wedding photos.

Our route will take us through ever-interesting Fort Mason. We’ll meet at 11am on Saturday, February 17, at the Marina Green parking lot (X on the map), by the Phil’s Coffee truck, near the corner of Marina Blvd and Scott St. Click map for detail. There is usually plenty of parking in the Marina Green lot. NOTE: The walk is at 11am, not the usual 10am AASCEND meeting time. We plan to sit down together to eat along the way, so bring a lunch. It’s San Francisco, so dress accordingly! If weather threatens, check the website to be sure it’s on, but if it’s just a little mist, heck, we’ll show are stuff and walk together anyway!

It will be fun to walk and talk together again. See you there!

Who: Adults on the spectrum, family, professionals and friends all welcome!

When: Saturday, Feb 17 2024 at 11:00 AM
