Date

Saturday, June 17, 2017


Time

9:00am - 10:00am


Location

FDR Park
1500 Pattison Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19130


In FDR Park, meet at the FDR Park Boathouse on Wednesdays at 8:30am, Thursdays at 6pm, and Saturdays at 9am. All sessions will last approximately one hour and are open to all ages and all abilities. No need to register in advance – just show up! Youth under 18 are welcome and must be accompanied by an adult.

This pilot program is a partnership between Fairmount Park Conservancy,¬†Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Philly Powered, and the Health Promotion Council. Philadelphia Parks & Recreation staff will lead the walking groups with support from community walking group leaders, following training via the Arthritis Foundation‘s Walk With Ease program.

Through this program, we hope to promote positive health outcomes, increase use of Philadelphia’s park system, and create opportunities for people to pursue fitness goals while meeting their neighbors. Changes to the schedule and other relevant news or updates will be posted to the We Walk PHL Facebook group. Please email us at wewalkPHL@gmail.com for more information.
