How do I go about doing this?

Thanks,

Message Thank you for your response.

Please correct me if wrong. I think what you are saying would not give us the walking distance. I would say that, it would be half a mile buffer.. as crow flies!

Message Vaishali,

To calculate distance along a road network, you can use Network Analyst - this is an optional extension to ArcGIS.
