Get Walking! On the Homestretch of Healthy Hearts With Parks

There are only a few walks left in the schedule of the Healthy Hearts with Parks community initiative. These events, which are focused on health-related topics and integrate physical activity through the walks, have been a great way for the Parks & Recreation Department to integrate fitness, health and wellness.

The walks are open to individuals of all ages and offer opportunities for people to check their body fat content, blood pressure and take advantage of other healthy initiatives provided courtesy of event sponsor Sierra Providence Health Network. Each walking event is two miles and will enable the participants to visit various parks in the community.

The City recreation centers have been very active, as well, with their own walking clubs. If you would like to be a part of the upcoming walks or join a walking club in your area, please call 541-4331.

The schedule below shows the list of walking events that will culminate with an awards ceremony on November 11th at one of the most picturesque parks in the city.
