Guided Walks in Erie County Parks - The Walks for 2015 have been completed.  They will start back up in the Spring. 

The Erie County Departments of Health, Parks &  Recreation, and Senior Services have teamed up with the Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo to offer healthy family fun throughout the Erie County Parks system.  Each Spring and Fall, people of all ages and abilities are invited to join us for a 6-week series of guided walks through beautiful Erie County parks. 

Each Saturday morning walk begins at 9:00 am at a different park each week during the 6-week session.  Walkers are invited to come to any or all of the walks.

At these walks, you will have the opportunity to learn valuable health information, and to participate in health screenings such as blood pressure and Body Mass Index (BMI).

Senior Services programs, health screenings, health education materials and smoking cessation services, products and program enrollment are available at each walk.

Let’s Be Active Erie County!
