Nordic walking is suitable for everyone from the beginning exerciser to the active athlete. Please wear comfortable footwear and dress for outdoor weather. Equipment rental fee $9 or bring a set of nordic walking poles. Covid 19 safety protocols will follow state and school district recommendations for in-person events.
