Assiniboine Park Walking Meet Up

 

Time to get outside and enjoy a Sunday morning stroll through the park.

We will take a loop around the park and walk at a speed that is comfortable to everyone.

I am sure we can all use a little fresh air and exercise.

Afterward we can go for coffee.

After coffee some of us plan to check out the zoo.

See you there!

 

Make sure you have good walking shoes/runners on.

No $2 Meet up fee.

FYI - There is an Arthritis Walk that starts at 8am and will probably just be ending as we start. They usually block the road in front of the Qualicum center. If you plan to park inside the park, you will have to park in the old zoo parking lot near the Qualicum center.

 

 * Anyone interested in checking out the zoo after the walk on this meet up?

The 3 penguins visiting from Florida are here and there is a new polar bear exhibit.

    The walk and the coffee and lunch at the Park Café was really enjoyable. It was a beautiful day for a walk. I enjoyed the zoo as well. Was tired but after the day outing but it was a good tired.

    First I have to say, out of 33 sign ups, it ended up being only 6 of us. That is an all time low for attendance in this group and a surprise. Even so, I had a great day at the park. The weather could not have been better. The café was really nice. The zoo fun but tiring. Check out the photos.

    Sorry - I really wanted to go to this, but I hurt myself at work this week. Hopefully see you all soon! ;)

      Some other time then.

    Yes, you still meet me at the Qualicum Family Center, outside in front of it. I look like my photo and will be wearing a name tag. The only difference tomorrow is that we will be walking with more people. The Arthritis Walk takes a loop around the park too. You don't have to pay anything or register for anything if you don't want to. That was merely an option available where they offer a goodie bag and t-shirt. Or if you want to offer support for the charity. That's all. I have done those walks before and if you have never done them before, there is an enthusiasm to the air from the people and I just think it may surprise you. Otherwise, same plans as before. Afterward we will choose whether to go for coffee, ice cream, the zoo, or simply go home. I look forward to seeing you.

    Sorry, prior commitment. Good luck!

    Genny from The Arthritis Society advises that if members want to participate, they offer good and goodie bags, plus everyone who registers gets a t-shirt. A minimum donation of $20 would be appreciated. :)

    June 8, 2013

  • Stacey

    The event coordinator for The Arthritis Society, Genny has invited us to walk along with the Arthritis Society walk tomorrow. There was no registration fee for this walk, but donations are gratefully accepted. There is nothing like the spirit of these walks. It should be a good morning. Come a little earlier if you need parking, it will be VERY busy in the park.

    June 8, 2013

  • Stacey

    Important: I am corrected. The Registration for the walk starts at 8am. They start walking at 10am! We will be walking the same time as the Arthritis walk. It will be busy, so be prepared. Lots happening at the park on Sunday. I will be wearing a badge with my name. Expect crowds of people.

    Looking forward to the walk and the zoo. I have not seen Hudson yet & those penguins are so darn cute!!!

    June 8, 2013

    • Stacey

      Yeah, so am I. We will go for a loop around the park first. Then stop back at the Qualicum Family Center where we can decide our next move. Some suggest ice cream. Some would like to get coffee. And a few want to go to the zoo.

  • Margaret

    This will be my first meet-up! Looking forward to it.

    hi Stacey; something has just come up and I am unable to attend Sunday's Assinaboine park walk.

    June 5, 2013

  • Cheron L.

    I will be walking at the park, but not with the group. I'm walking 5 K's for the Arthritis Society! Hope the weather is just right....for all! :)

    Might cancel but tentatively yes I will go

  • CHLOE and L.

    Going to try golfing, unfortunately it's around the same time. Maybe see some of you afterwards.

    June 3, 2013

  • Bev P.

    Going to the zoo sounds good but mybe another time I have to cancel as I"m doing a yard sale that weekend.

    June 1, 2013

  • Mark C.

    Go for ice cream across the bridge afterwards?...

    May 30, 2013

    • Stacey

      Looks like there could be a couple that want to get ice cream, Mark. Some want to just get coffee. Some just want to go for the walk and go home. Some want to go check out the zoo. So we will decide after the walk and probably split up into smaller groups again.

  • Gus M.

    I apologize I won't be able to attend this event

    May 17, 2013

    • Stacey

      That is fine. We will see you next time.

      May 26, 2013

    • CHLOE and L.

      I like Mark's idea re: ice-cream.

      May 30, 2013

  • Rosina

    Sorry, but did I miss where we were going to meet in the park before our walk?

    May 26, 2013

    • Stacey

      I guess it is in too small of print under the park's address. We shall meet at the Qualicum Family Center by the duck pond for 10am.

      May 26, 2013

  • Peggy W.

    Stacey, I'd love to take in the zoo after the walk if you and others are interested. I love the zoo! Can't wait to meet Hudson!

    May 17, 2013

  • Chris R.

    Unfortunately I'm already going to be at Assiiniboine Park doing the Walk for Arthritis. Wish I could have joined you all.

    April 2, 2013

    • Stacey

      Oh that is a fine cause to support. I use to walk with a group from the Running Room. They are fantastic people. Maybe we will see you and cheer you on!
