We found one location in PA and then decided on another due to lack of parking. We will have to pay some fees but don't know what yet. One person I did contact for some advice on walks was the walk coordinator in the state of PA for walkamerica (march of dimes). If you go to their website you can find locations. I just simply called them for advice, and tips, etc.
We are having the walk in Philadelphia and got a YES at a park in downtown - we didn't have to worry about streets being closed, etc because they are having events all weekend. The place we are hoping to secure has tons of events from small to very large.
If you can't get a park, public area, etc to say YES how about you just do it at the local high school track and maybe you can begin there. When I did a march of dimes walk, we met at a bank and just walked the sidewalks in the city. They didn't have roads closed, they just had signs pointing in the direction of the path to follow.
