What we're about

This group is for those that would like to get outside and walk an hour or so. We'll keep a moderate to brisk pace -- enough to feel like we're getting good exercise, but not so fast that we can't enjoy the scenery or conversations.

All are invited to give suggestions as to walking locations. I'm new to the area so would love ideas.

Walk at Azalea Park in Roswell, June 1, 9:30AM

NOTE TIME IS 9:30 a.m. Azalea Park has a trail that is flat and paved. The new boardwalk section is terrific, or we might consider going the other way this time for a change of pace. Plan on walking about 3.5 miles, which generally takes us ~75 minutes. There are several parking areas along the river on Azalea Drive. Meet near the stacked canoes. You can't miss this because they are so colorful. Meet at 9:30, start walking by 9:35. Hope you'll join us.

June 8 Walk at Roswell Area Park 10AM

Roswell Area Park

Meet at 10:00, start walking by 10:05. This is a great park to walk. It's about 3 miles total, with just a few hills to get our glow on. Bathrooms are available. Come join us! Park at the first lot on the left.

Walk at new Mabry Park, June 15, 9:30AM

Mabry Park

START TIME IS 9:30 a.m. Mabry Park has opened, and looks like a good place for us to try out. Meet by the playground at 9:30 and we'll start walking by 9:35. We'll aim for 3 miles.

Atlanta Botanical Garden - Imaginary Worlds exhibit

Atlanta Botanical Garden

From the website: Imaginary Worlds makes an encore this spring with new storybook-themed plant sculptures, including ones from Alice in Wonderland, joining many favorite installations from 2018 dressed in all-new attire. This spring’s Imaginary Worlds: Alice’s Wonderland, presented May 11 – Oct. 27 at both gardens, features a massive installation from Alice in Wonderland in the Skyline Garden. The favorite children’s tale plays out with a sleeping Alice relaxing in the Garden, while an enormous chess board and oversized card characters occupy the event lawn, with a giant Cheshire Cat poised nearby. A giant White Rabbit is floating in the pond in an upside down umbrella. In addition, many of the 2018 sculptures will be outfitted with different plants, staged in surprisingly new locations or both. Link: https://atlantabg.org/calendar/imaginary-worlds/2019-06-22/ Several of the walkers discussed and we decided this is something we don't want to miss. Let's see if this date works. If there are too many conflicts, we'll look for another one. Cost of admission is $21.95. Meet at the entrance at 10:30.
