Urban Hike in Baldwin Park

Meet at Blue Jacket Park on the West side of Baldwin Park near the fountain. We will hike about 5 miles around the lake and back. We will have a fairly good pace. Wear comfortable shoes and come prepared for whatever weather brings. I will walk rain or shine. If enough response, we may do this every Thursday evening.

      Hi Katy. If you don't carpool with Rodney, follow these directions: Take Bumby north past Colonial dr and go all the way to Corrine Dr. Turn right on Corrine. Continue on Corrine for about half a mile and turn left on General Rees Ave. Continue on General Rees Ave about 6 or 7 blocks. Continue a little farther on General Rees and you will see a large park and field on your right. This is Blue Jacket Park. (If you came to Glenridge Way, you went too far on General Rees and you need to turn around). Just enter the parking area on the right and park anywhere. Walk up General Rees along the park and you will see a fountain in the park. We meet at the fountain.

    I'm not sure if it will affect our walk tonight, but The Halloween Hustle 5k race to end childhood hunger will take place tonight at Baldwin Park. This Halloween themed event includes a 5k run/walk, Community Based Care of Central FL Kids’ Fun Run and Halloween party with activities for adults and children from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Baldwin Park. The 5k run will start at 6:30 PM. Usually, all races and walks go around the lake. I'll be there for our walk anyway.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
