Meet us at a different park or walking trail to explore the wonderful outdoor space that our region has to offer. Children of all ages (including those in strollers) and leashed pets are welcome to attend.

On the third Saturday of each month, join Mayor Winnecke for the Healthier U Walk, followed by Fitness in the Park, an initiative of Energize Evansville. These walks are marked with an *.
