Join us for a walk at Veterans Park!
Saturday, November 5 | 10:00 - 11:00 AM
Dr. Christine Brussock will be our walk leader.
Topic: Managing roadblocks in daily exercise.
This Walk With A Doc program is designed to provide some general health information and a moderately-paced walk on the Capital Area Greenbelt. The walk is FREE, but we ask that you pre-register so we know how many participants to expect.
This is a rain-or-shine event, but may be canceled if there are thunderstorms, high winds, snow, or ice. If there is a need to cancel participants will be notified via email. We do our best to make this notification 1-hour prior to the program start time.
The full walk will be approximately 2 miles; however, there is an option to head back earlier if you don’t want to walk the full walk. Most of the walk will be flat, but there are some slightly elevated areas. The full walk is estimated to take approximately 1-hour based on the pace of the walkers. We encourage you to come out and join the walk for as long or as little as you are able.
Things to Know Before you Go:
- You may encounter slightly uneven terrain along with paved surfaces.
- Dress for the weather and wear comfortable supportive shoes.
- Bring a bottle of water with you to stay hydrated. You may also bring your own snacks.
- You may want to bring a hat, sunglasses, bug spray, and sunscreen.
- This route is handicapped-accessible.
This walk is being organized by Penbrook Borough, Susquehanna Township, Capital Area Greenbelt Association, and Dauphin County Parks & Recreation Department. We would like to thank the City of Harrisburg Parks & Recreation Department for allowing the use of this location.
This walk is being supported as part of the Park Rx program sponsored by Highmark Blue Shield through the Dauphin County Parks & Recreation Department.
