Weekly Walks in City of Calgary Parks
Interest Group: Weekly Walks in City of Calgary Parks
Facilitator: Leslie Nicholls
Participants: You are encouraged to come out to enjoy conversation whilst walking in the diversity of our parks. It is a pleasant surprise how our fitness improves throughout the seasons.
Start: June 4th until weather turns in October
When: Tuesday morning from 10:00 AM -12:00 PM
Theme: Alternating NW, SW, NE, SE parks. There will be a preference for parks with toilets in parking area and/or along the walk.
This City of Calgary website will be a common resource for us. The link includes an address (which is a Google map link), features and history of the park, as well as pdf maps.
Everyone is asked to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to 10:00 AM with water, hiking poles if desired and be ready to leave by 10:00. A sign in sheet with an emergency contact request will be circulated by the coordinator for the walk. This list will be carried throughout the walk.
Regular participants will be asked to research and coordinate one walk during the season. This will include providing parking and meeting place information for their choice.
An email will be sent out each week advising where the walk will be and who the coordinator is. A summary of the previous week’s walk will be included in the email. Participants should receive this email four to six days in advance of the walk. Those walking do not need to respond, rather to ensure they are on time.
We look forward to another interesting season of companionship and exercise.
