    Would you translate this as "pedestrian walkway"? any thoughts? they are talking about tourist spots in Medellin, Colombia and it is the "Pasaje Peatonal Carabobo".

    That's a tough one, because I don't think we have a set expression for this idea in English. In Japanese, it is literally "pedestrian heaven," and means that the roads are closed to auto traffic. But in English, I think we would have to write around it, as in "stroll along Carabobo Street, which is free from automobile traffic..." Here is a site that uses your proposed translation, though.
