Walk with us!
We Walk PHL is a free walking group that will meet several times per week at Hunting Park, FDR Park, and East Fairmount Park, and is launching the week of June 12th, 2017.
In Hunting Park, meet at Hunting Park Recreation center on Tuesdays at 8:30am, Thursdays at 8:30am, and Saturdays at 9am. All sessions will last approximately one hour and are open to all ages and all abiilties. 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.
