Burbank,

Calif. - July 22, 2013 -KCETLink's original multi-media series,
City

Walk
, premieres the fourth episode of the six-part series in Southern

California on
KCET, Thursday, July 25 at

7 p.m. and nationally on Link TV on Thursday, August 1 at 8:30 p.m. EST.
City Walk continues to spotlight the

most exotic and exciting walks in America, traveling to cities across the

country that are currently transforming themselves into more walkable communities.

 

Viewers get a look at

"The Big Parade", a two-day walk in Los Angeles that includes about 100 public

stairways over 35 miles, from downtown L.A. to Mt. Hollywood. The walk runs on

a timetable and is designed as a series of attached loops, so that people can

come and go as they please.

 

Then, viewers take a

breathtaking ride on The Gold Line, a light rail running from Pasadena to East

Los Angeles via Downtown Los Angeles serving several attractions, including

Little Tokyo, Union Station, the Southwest Museum, Chinatown, and the shops of

Old Town Pasadena. The line, which is one of six in the Metro Rail system,

entered service in 2003 and is operated by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan

Transportation Authority.

 

Next, viewers explore

the trails and streets of Austin, Texas. Not just the home of barbecue, beer

and bats, Austin hosts the most amazing music, film and interactive festival,

"South by Southwest" - especially unique when your tour guide is Austin

advertising wizard Roy Spence, the mind behind the groundbreaking 'Don't Mess

With Texas' campaign.

 

Finally, viewers

journey to Atlanta, which, once upon a time, was one of the least walkable

cities in America where entire neighborhoods were developed without sidewalks

and lots of sprawl and cul-de-sacs. Today, the city is ahead of the curve with

construction of the
BeltLine, a

22-mile pedestrian-friendly corridor, circling downtown and eventually

connecting 45 neighborhoods with each other.

 

This episode explores

this unique combination of rails, trails, green space and art through the

joyful eyes of the happiest freight train conductor in Georgia.
