    Walkability in Spokane has a LOt to do with sidewalks! The city maintains that the residents are responsible for sidewalk repair. the result is that residents walk in the streets. Those neighborhoods with trees have sidewalks that cannot be used by the disabled, people with strollers, or anyone with balance issues.
