What we're about

Would you like to walk more but don't find it appealing to walk alone? Participants will find motivation and social companionship for a weekly, long walk in Central Park followed by the opportunity to get to know each other better at brunch. For one hour, we will walk at a continuous, non-stop pace comfortable enough for talking. Those who wish to eat afterward will convene at a local restaurant for brunch and further conversation. Our goal is to support each other in healthy exercise and meet people of common interests.

New York Walking Meetup Group for 50 Plus

Central Park

New York Walking Meetup for 50 Plus has resumed. New and returning group members, both men and women, are welcome each Sunday. I'm delighted to meet so many interesting, vital, and upbeat people. We usually walk on the Bridle Path, but members may suggest different walks. The walk is approximately one hour. Those who wish to can meet for brunch afterward at nearby outdoor restaurants such as Table D'Hote on 92nd St. near Madison or the nearby Island. I ask a nominal $2 fee/per walker for each walk to help defray the cost of this website which allows us to communicate. Walkers should plan to arrive a little early. The start time is 10:30 so we have plenty of time to pursue all the city has to offer the rest of the day. We cannot wait for latecomers because that delays everyone. I will be wearing a blue scarf. Read the following directions carefully. If you RSVP we will look for you, but please cancel if you are not coming as a courtesy to other walkers. Enter the park at 90th St and Fifth Avenue and walk across the road where there are bicyclists and joggers. The Bridle Path is a wide firm dirt path that goes around the reservoir. We meet on the Bridle Path, not the narrow, elevated jogging path around the reservoir. Meet on the Bridle Path near the benches and water fountain close to a little kiosk on the left. "For an easy and pleasant way to boost your health and well-being, spend a couple of hours a week in nature," according to a 2019 British study that examined the benefits of spending times in parks and woodlands and at the beach.The Week, July 5/July 12, 2019 "Walking may be one of the most powerful “medicines” available.It can help lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and even keep your memory sharp."
