Why take a walk?

For fun, to explore your city, your parks, your neighbourhoods.

To be social with friends and family. Walking is the perfect time to chat.

For exercise and general fitness maintenance. Walking is preventative, it will keep you out of the hospital, but also keeps you fit for future active pursuits, like hiking in the Rockies.

For transportation. Walk to get your groceries, walk to school or to the office.

Walk to disconnect from the electronics. To go slow on purpose, to relax.

To be immersed in nature. “There is no wi-fi in the first, but trust me, you’ll find a better connection”

To connect with the vibrancy of the city; the great shops and eats. The Downtown art walk, the energy of 17 Avenue and 4 St or Kensington Road.

To have a mini-adventure close to home. To connect the city in a way not possible by car. To discover hidden pathways, and trails, stairways and viewpoints and even restaurants and cafe’s.

Why walk you ask? Walking is wellness! Check out Doc. Evans on YouTube 23 1/2 hours.
