National Take A Walk In The Park Day

Did you know that today is National Take A Walk in The Park Day?

Taking a walk in a local park is definitely a good way to clear your mind from the stresses of the day, re-energize yourself and at the same time help to improve your health.  Make sure to take a camera with you during your walk as parks offer many opportunities to photograph nature.  There is the possibility of capturing some great pictures of birds or other wildlife, flowers, clouds or the sunset.

The City of Rockwall has over 25 parks and connecting trails to walk or run today or any day.  More than 80% of Rockwall residents live within 1 mile of a park and 68% of residents live within 1/2 mile of a park.  It takes about 15 minutes to walk 1 mile.

Attention walkers and joggers explore the 25 parks and 15+ miles of trails with Map My Run.  We used the May My Run app to navigate specific routes for you to enjoy that may be closer than you think.

Hi! I am a proud Texas native. I probably love working and living here more than anyone you know! I have been working in city government for 19 years and in Rockwall the past 7. I enjoy watching my kids play sports and attending sporting events with my family. My hobbies are fishing, kayaking, shopping, and walks (and sometimes running) in our beautiful parks.
