Pleasure walks and public areas:
Some opinions rule one is not to go for walks on Tisha B’av, such as to the marketplace, being that doing so can lead to frivolity. [Practically, this is the final ruling, and we are stringent in this matter even on Erev Tisha B’av. For this same reason, one should not walk around in groups on Tisha B’av.]
 Michaber 554:21
 Kol Bo; There are no Poskim who argue on this matter. [Kaf Hachaim 554:95]
 The reason: The reason for this is so one’s mind not be diverted from the mourning.
 Kaf Hachaim 554:95
 Rama 553:2
 M”B 559:41 in name of Shlah
