Warm weather got you busting to go outdoors? What about the family?
The FreeWalkers and Union County Parks have the perfect event for you and your family. It's a FREE Sunday stroll on November 4th along the beautiful trails that grace Echo Lake Park and extend to Lenape Park. This is not a race but a chance to walk a little bit farther than you normally might.
The route is a straight line from the Gazebo at Echo Lake to the bridge in Lenape Park and back. The trail distance we've marked for this event is about two miles. So, you can walk the entire distance and cover up to 4 miles (2 miles to the end and 2 miles back). But, if you prefer, simply walk as far as you want and return.
The idea is to get everyone moving - walking or rolling. There will be fun activities for kids, a souvenir passport book to stamp along the way and special gifts for all who participate. It will be a special family-friendly and healthy event. Infants or toddlers in strollers? No problem!! They can come along for the ride. Even bring the grandparents and the dog along! Wheelchairs are welcome and encouraged to roll with us too.
There will be a rolling start from 10:30 to 11:00 so you can choose to start at anytime between. We ask all families to walk together as a team and to encourage and enjoy each other's company. There will be creative activities along the way as well as educational opportunities to learn more about nature and the environment around us.
