list APRXs in workspace folder

I'm in the process of migrating my stand-alone python scripts from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro. Using PyScripter as an IDE, I was able to successfully set up my environment. I'm using Python 3.6.2 that came with Pro 2.1. 


I want to simply list the files in the workspace folder. Line 3 causes an OSError.

import arcpy, os

aprx ="Path\to\folder")

#list the APRXs of the workspace folder
for root, dirs, files, in os.walk(aprx):
    for f in files:
        if f.endswith(".aprx"):
            mxd =, f))
            print("current map being checked is  " + f)


How do I create a variable for the workspace folder for Pro? Here's how I would've done it for ArcMap:

ws = arcpy.env.workspace = r'path\to\folder'
