AUBURN — The Auburn Conservation Commission and the Parks & Recreation advisory board are inviting the greater Auburn community to take a “Walk in the Park” on Friday, March 30.

“National Take a Walk in the Park Day” is observed annually as an opportunity for exercise and relaxation. Often calming and therapeutic, a walk helps clear the mind. It also helps re-energize and improves health.

“A walk in the park will likely be the most enjoyable part of your day,” said Auburn resident and Conservation Commission member Tizz Crowley. “Be sure to do so with a clear mind and with your eyes open. In addition to avoiding a fall, open eyes will allow you to take in the beauty of nature’s wonders: flowers, trees, birds, and wildlife.”

Auburn’s park walk will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Knight House just below West Pitch Park. The walk will meander toward Sullivan Square via the Riverwalk, Festival Plaza, Bonney Park and the Art Wall. Refreshments will be provided at the end of the walk.

Auburn has many public parks, and additional “Walks in the Park” may be scheduled. A list of parks can be found on the city’s website: www.auburnmaine.gov/pages/government/public-parks.

For more information or to host a “Walk in the Park,” e-mail Crowley at [email protected] or call Ward 5 Councilor Leroy Walker at 207-577-2694.

Residents can learn more about the work of the Conservation Commission, Parks & Recreation advisory board and all of Auburn’s many boards and committees at www.auburnmaine.gov.
