A Walk in the Park...Akron Falls Park

Part of the Be Active program hosted by Erie County Department of Health & Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo.The group meets at 9:00 but doesn't start walking until 9:30.  In addition to it's cultural history and charms,  Akron Falls Park is also the setting of a beautiful, yet tragic love story, the Legend of Murder Creek. Meet at the Akron Cummings Lodge, 44 Parkview Drive, Akron. Look for Be Active sign at park entrance. Here's a map to the park:

The Erie County Dept. of Health & Wellness:

"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."

    Absolutely gorgeous autumn day! We got a good workout with all those hills. Disappointed that the"falls" were a mere trickle...not what we saw last time. But the leaves were pretty and it was a great walk.

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.
