2220 Como Park Blvd, Lancaster, NY
Part of the Be Active program hosted by Erie County Department of Health & Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo. Meet at Lancaster Place (indicated by a red rectangle on the map below.) The group meets at 9:00 but doesn't start walking until 9:30. Look for the hot pink "Be Active" signs at the park entrance. Here's a map of the park:
"The free “Be Active” Erie County walks offer a shorter (30 min. – 1.5 mile) and a longer (45 min. – 2.5 mile) moderate paced family walks. For safety purposes, they are on the park roads or paved trails. Registration (not required) and health/wellness info, including BP checks, start at 9 AM. Both walks leave at 9:45. Healthy refreshments (usually water and occasionally apples) are offered after the walks. The walk leaders are staff from the Wellness Institute and EC DOH. Often the walkers are accompanied by mounted ER Sheriffs which adds fun and safety.
The Parks Department is working to provide additional signage and more self-guided “adventure” trails of various difficulty levels in all the parks, for individuals who like to strike out on their own."
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
