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 leaders: This walk is shared among 3 stellar leaders — Stephanie White, Lee Barnhill, and Teri Sewell. Ask Lee about the birdlife!
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.
