Healthy Parks, Healthy People

What do you do to stay healthy and active?

Do you take the dog for a walk every day or do you set a goal to run three miles a week? Do you limit how many times you eat out or have you increased fruits and vegetables in your diet?

Whatever it is you do, every little bit counts! You are among the millions of Americans who are working to improve and maintain their physical, emotional, intellectual, social and environmental health and wellness. It all begins with the decision to take action!

Active living, particularly outdoors, promotes cardiovascular fitness, reduces the risk of developing a chronic disease, helps maintain a healthy weight, reduces anxiety and depression, builds a relationship with nature, all while improving self-esteem and an overall sense of well-being. Active living includes walking, running, hiking, biking, paddling and much more. Great Parks of Hamilton County’s 21 parks and preserves provides the perfect environment to enjoy these activities that help you stay healthy. This is why Great Parks has declared 2014 the year of “Healthy Parks, Healthy People”. Check out the calendar below for a list of activities. It is updated every season so you can keep up a fresh schedule with your activities. Also, be sure to take part in our Trail Challenge!
