Type: STSP Weekly I Pace: Conversational I Trail: combination of concrete multi-use path and dirt/gravel I Distance: approximately 3 miles.
Start your Friday with a morning walk through the natural parkland in and around Belmar Park.
Walk Description: We will walk in and through Lakewood's Belmar Park, near Belmar Commons and Kountze Lake. This 127-acre natural parkland wraps around Lakewood Heritage Center and the 20th Century Museum and offers walking paths and access to Weir Gulch. The park is left in a self-maintaining natural state with prairie grasses, cattails, purple thistle and willows. We will walk different paths each week, returning to our starting point at the end.
Walking movement leader: *NEW* Walk Leader Lee Barnhill is leading this beautiful walk during the Fall and Winter months while W2C leader Teri Sewell is on hiatus. Lee lives near the park and walks it regularly. She knows all the best spots for bird-gazing! More to come about Lee ...
Parking: There is plenty of parking in the library's parking lot.
Dog Friendly: Please be sure your dog can handle 3 miles and remains leashed on a 6 foot leash (no retractables). There are baggies at the park.
Restrooms: The library is not open at this hour for bathroom breaks. Please use the restroom before joining us.
Weather: Please dress in layers appropriate for the expected weather of the day. Water is always a good idea!
RSVP: This is a rain-or-shine walk, but it's a good idea to RSVP in case the walk is unexpectedly cancelled.
