HISTORIC SWAN POINT GARDEN CEMETARY WALK w/ BLACKSTONE BLVD OPTION

  • Sep 24, 2013 · 4:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

This will be a level 1 event, flat paved surfaces.

 We can take our time in the cemetary. When we go out to the Blvd. we will be walking at a moderate to fast pace. You must have either a headlamp or a flash light w/ you. We may not need them, but we will have them if we do. Reflective vest is not a bad idea if you have one. Bring water and a snack the usual must haves. Park where you can on the boulevard. I don't know what time the gates are closed so parking in the cemetary may not be an option. I will look into that. Plenty of parking on Blackstone Blvd if not.

Duration : 2 hours +

Distance 3-6 depending if you choose to do the Boulevard as well. The Boulevard is 3 miles round trip. You will the option to do both, or just the cemetary.

BY SIGNING UP FOR THIS EVENT YOU AND YOUR GUEST IF APPLICABLE AGREE TO THE BELOW ATTACHED LIABILITY WAIVER.
