Get the kids walking: With New Year’s resolutions well under way, there’s no better time than January to get out and walk with your kids. Diamond Brand Outdoors Community Outreach Manager Gary Eblen is broadening his Tuesday-morning program “Walks with Gary” by offering “Saturday Walks on the Greenway.” The new jaunt allows working parents and their school-age children to enjoy the heart-healthy activity of taking long walks together.
Each Saturday walk begins at 9 a.m. at Patton Park in Fletcher, continues on to Jackson Park, then back on the Mud Creek Nature Trail and the Oklawaha Greenway. Anyone wishing to walk only half of the route is free to meet the group at Jackson Park at 10 a.m. and walk the trail back to Patton Park. Those walking only one way will need to make transportation arrangements for getting back to their vehicles at the end of the walk. The first walk is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 31, the next one for Feb. 7.
