Walking Groups for Seniors

Walk with us to stay active and fit, chat with others, and explore new routes and trails. Open to all seniors, these free walking groups are also a dementia friendly environment, perfect for a person living with dementia and a family member to attend together. Walking is an excellent way to promote cardiovascular and brain health, build strength to reduce the risk of falls, and lift mood!
