The City of Newburgh Recreation Department invites the community to join its latest program, the Walking Club.
The walking club is free and will meet every Monday and Friday, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Basketball Courtyard of Delano-Hitch Recreation Park.
Walking just 30 minutes a day or more is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to get active and improve your health. Frequent, brisk walks can boost brain power, increase productiveness and reduce a wide range of health risks. The walking club offers a wonderful way to exercise in a safe, outdoor space, get motivated, and meet new people.
COVID-19 protocols will be enforced, and participants are asked to bring a mask as well as maintain social distance while walking. Participants are reminded to bring a water bottle and wear comfortable clothing and sneakers!
To join the club, register at the Activity Center, 401 Washington Street, Newburgh, NY 12550 or visit the Recreation Department’s website.
