Thanks so much all for the responses. We will definitely check out these walking places. Now I just have to train the seniors how to walk up/down a ramp (will have to stock up on high value treats) - I can lift them up occasionally into the van to go to vets etc. , but I think I will be taking them on outings a little more often.

In MI we watched a family train their golden retriever to get into and out of the water at the marina from his boat slip, using a ramp he fastened from the slip to just underwater. It only took a week with the use of hotdogs!

We live in a very quiet neighborhood and we walked our lovely old yellow lab every morning and evening in the area. We got to meet more people than you can imagine, they all knew her name and not ours! She used to lie out on the front yard and people would come along and talk to her and ignore us!
