A Walk in the Park...Chestnut Ridge

Part of the Be Active program hosted by Erie County Department of Health & Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo. Meet at the Casino. The group meets at 9:00 but doesn't start walking until 9:45. Look for the "Be Active" signs at the park entrance. All of the Be Active Spring Schedule walks are posted on the Walking for Fun and Fitness Meetup group.

Here's a map of 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."

    I don't know how many of you went to the Chestnut Ridge meetup. It was pouring with rain when I got up. I know that Phil still walks in the rain, so I'm assuming it went as planned. Sorry I didn't make it. Next week!!!

      Sure, that's fine. One of the other walkers brings her son, who is about the same age. See you at Chestnut Ridge.
