April 30, 2017 by  

Richmond nature lovers are invited to lace up their sneakers and then head outdoors to come to an event that will combine walking with spending time in a peaceful natural setting.

Walk Richmond has organized a walk through the bog in Richmond Nature Park. Participants will have an opportunity to observe the area’s plants and animals while they stroll the trails of the 200-acre site. It is open to all ages, and offers partial disability access for those who require it to be able participate.

This free event is being held as part of the Walk Richmond initiative, which encourages local people to get at least 30 to 60 minutes of exercise each day. Before heading out for the Nature Park activity, those who are interested in participating can purchase a walking kit at either Cambie Community Centre or Stevenson Community Centre. It includes a pedometer, a schedule of walks, and also a Richmond Walking Guide Book. A printer’s binding service can be utilized to craft items such as these.

The outing has been planned for Thursday, May 4th. It will begin at 7:00 pm and has been scheduled to run until 8:00 pm. Walkers are asked to meet at Nature House before setting out, and additional details about both the activity and the Walk Richmond initiative can be found on the community’s website.
