Two minutes, according to a new sign unveiled Tuesday in the village's Pocket Park off Main Street next to Village Hall. The sign lists walk times to various parks, schools and other public spaces in the village.

“Our one-square mile Village is very walkable, but we are located in the middle of an automobile-centric area,” Mayor Dan DeLano said in a news release. “Our tagline is 'Walkable Williamsville,' so this is a bit of public relations to get people to do just that: walk the village.”

The times were calculated based on a leisurely 2.5 mph walking pace. The production of the sign was sponsored by Independent Health.
