Life-size statues of Mr. Walker have been installed in nine locations around Springfield. The presence of these brightly-colored statues is intended to reinforce existing crosswalk signage and serve as a visible reminder to both drivers and pedestrians to use and respect crosswalks.
Statues are located in the following locations:
Park Central Square - Southwest corner directly in front of the Park Central Branch Library.
Commercial Street - Crosswalk location near the intersection of Commercial Street and Robberson Avenue.
Grand Street - Crosswalk location on the Missouri State University campus near the intersection of Grand and Kings Avenue.
Grant Avenue and Sunset Street - Located next to the South Creek Greenway Trail. This walker's coral color was chosen by the neighborhood and community.
South Jefferson - Located just north of the intersection of Jefferson and Sunset Street, also located on the South Creek Greenway Trail. This walker is a glowing green color in support of the Ozark Greenways trail system.
Campbell Avenue Pedestrian Bridge - Located on the pedestrian bridge over Campbell Avenue near the intersection of Primrose Street.
Pythian Street and Patterson Avenue - Located near Lake Country Soccer and Cooper Tennis Complex facilities. This Walker loves playing soccer!
Walnut Lawn - Located at a crosswalk near the Broadway Avenue intersection.
National Avenue and Trafficway - Located at the intersection across from Jordan Valley Commons, this red walker shows his support for the Springfield Cardinals.
