Exercise in the Parks: Walking/Jogging Paths
Health Department Encourages Walking/ Jogging in Parks
The Maplewood Health Department, in partnership with the Maplewood Building and Recreation Departments, are encouraging walking and jogging in our neighborhood parks.
“Wellness in Maplewood is on the rise!” says Deputy Mayor Kathleen Leventhal. “People of all ages are walking and biking more. Our Kids Two Towns Triathlon was a huge success and we want to encourage our residents to stay active and healthy, daily."
"Walking and exercising in Maplewood’s beautiful parks not only contributes to your physical well-being - you’ll be outdoors in nature. Fresh air, trees, and maybe, meeting new friends will all contribute to your wellness.” says Health Officer, Robert Roe.
Here are updated walking paths developed by our Health, Recreation and Building Departments which when used as a resource for walking and exercise will bring even more benefits. Maplewood has six parks; most of which have a walking/ jogging path for exercise. Residents however may not know the distance around each of these paths and knowing the distances can be a great motivator and a way to measure progress.
