Parkallen Walking Group
Come Join the Parkallen Walking Group!
When: Tuesdays at 10 am
Where: Meeting at Buns and Roses
Our walks will be a steady pace, approximately 8-10 kms and typically 2 hours depending on the various trails used. There will be washrooms enroute and we will take a brief rest period to refuel, either at a restaurant/café or on a park bench. Bring money and/or snacks. The walk will go ahead in any weather, maybe modified in the winter if it is really cold and windy. There are shorter walks around Parkallen that we can do on really cold days.
Walkers should have sturdy footwear, ice grippers in winter, walking poles (if you want) and water. Participants are responsible for their own safety. A reasonable level of fitness is required as the terrain will be gravel, have small inclines and some stairs. I would like to keep a steady pace during the walk so no dogs please. They are cute, but can slow the group down.
The goal is to get moving, stay active and have fun. We live in a beautiful city with miles and miles of trails and pathways through the river valley, walking is a good way to enjoy the view. I have lead and been part of various walking groups and am looking forward to starting one in Parkallen.
Bring your SMILE and your sense of adventure.
