A Walk in the Park...Chestnut Ridge

Part of the Be Active program hosted by Erie County Department of Health & Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo. Meet at the Casino. The group meets at 9:00 but doesn't start walking until 9:30. Look for the Be Active signs at the park entrance. Both a walk and a separate hike are scheduled.

Here's a map of the park:

    We usually offer two walk distances- a shorter approx 30min walk or a longer approx 50min walk -both are done at a moderate pace and meet the Surgeon general's recommendation for dail y physical activity. The walks will leave from the Park Casino at the same time and going the same direction and returning to the Casino for some fruit and water. We are often accompanied by two mounted Sherriffs which add to the saftey and fun! The Fall colors should add another positive dimension Best PHIL

    Please make sure you always have ID on you. A guy in another meetup group I am in had a serious medical situation. He had no ID. on him. This put the people with him in a horrible, helpless situation. I noticed many don't have a last name on here... They at least had that for him and it helped a little... (He was unable to provide any info.). You never know when something may happen... Please, please, please carry ID! Please also pass this request to anyone you walk with that you don't really know. Thanks!

    Am I missing it?... How long is the walk?

    October 9, 2013

    • Mary D.

      Patricia, the walks are usually 2.5 to 3 miles, depending on which group you walk with. There is a faster group and a slower group.

      Thanks Mary!

    The Erie County Dept of Health and Wellness put up signs at the entrance to the park and along the way to the casino. These signs have two arrows on them.
    I don't know what sign you are referring to, Marguerite, but look for these temporary signs that point to the casino, which is the meeting place. See you there!

    It's a walk but the trails can be hilly at times. The nice thing about these walks is that they have two people from the Dept of Health that walk along. One keeps up with the fastest group, one with the slowest group. On one of the walks, we stopped by the falls in Akron and the guide showed us some yoga, if you're into that.
