You Can Walk All Winter Long

The benefits of walking are numerous and HE Parks is encouraging everyone to keep walking throughout the winter with monthly walking events and a new walking pass available for its indoor track.

For just $1 per visit, residents and non-residents can use the indoor track at the Triphahn Center. Walkers should stop at the service desk when they arrive to gain access to the track. Walkers should stay on the inside lanes, leaving the outer lanes for runners. Although strollers are not allowed on the track, children are welcomed to accompany parents for a walk on the track.

On one Saturday morning each month, HE Parks walkers can meet at a different park or facility for a community walk at events called Hoffman Walks. The events are planned through April, but more dates will be announced:
