Joining a walking group is one of the best ways to start and maintain a healthy walking habit. This type of physical activity will help to prevent and postpone chronic disease, and to build healthy bodies and minds. It also keeps individuals socially connected.
What people are saying!
" I have enjoyed participating in the Parks & Rec. Programs for seniors! I have lived in Newton for over 30 years, and since I have had no kids in the school system, I knew few people in the city except for my neighbors. The activities and trips that I have participated in has changed that, and added a wonderful richness to my life. Thank you for all you do to foster these programs and enrich the lives of seniors!"
We have two groups to choose from. Our early morning group meets at 8:00 AM at the Albemarle Fieldhouse to walk one measured mile and then enjoys coffee before heading off for the day.
And our Keep Moving program meets at various locations and walks 2 miles on Tuesday mornings from 9:45- 10:30 AM.
