Skyrattler's Walk on Wednesday (WOW) is Back!

If you enjoy walking outdoors and would like to discover some of the parks and trails in the Skyrattler Neighbourhood, the Walk on Wednesday is the perfect fit for you. Starting Wednesday, May 18th, and every Wednesday until the end of June, you can meet the group of walkers at the picnic table in Skyrattler Park at 7:00 p.m. and enjoy a 40 minute walk with your neighbours and fellow walkers. You can walk at your own pace and chat with your friends and neighbours at the same time.

This year, you will also be introduced to Urban Pole Walking, a Norwegian style of walking requiring the use of poles, which offers great physical advantages over regular walking. Gradual training and the special poles will be provided every Wednesday for those who are interested. What a great way to get good exercise and enjoy the outdoors in your own community! Come out and get fit!
