©2019 by GDMVA, Iowa's Walking Club


Walk these year round and seasonal routes on your own at your convenience.



Each Wednesday a group meets at 6 PM for an hour of walking and conversation. On the fourth Wednesday of each month we eat out afterwards. We'll decide the restaurant at the end of the walk.  

During the winter, we meet indoors. With the arrival of spring, we move outside, weather permitting.  For more information contact Bonnie Christensen or Ardith Ortgies at 515-277-5139.

In February we will meet at 6PM at the food court at Merle Hay Plaza. We'll eat out after we walk on February 26.

In March we will move back to Valley West Mall.
