Walk-in-the-Park


Walk in the Park

The walking group, led by a Sherwood Park Primary Care Network Exercise Physiologist, will walk for approximately 45-50 minutes for each session. There are no restrictions/limitations to participation save for each participant's ability to walk. Use of walking aids and poles is allowed and encouraged as necessary.

Any participant is able to stop early, rest along the way, or even walk for longer than the intended time, if they desire. Each walking route option is a loop and those who need to stop for breaks can easily catch up with the group on the next lap. 

Schedule

Wednesday Lunch Hour Walk
12:10PM - 1:00PM every Wednesday

Tuesday Evening Walk
5:10PM - 6:00PM every Tuesday


Registration

The group is community-based and has no formal regsitration or cost to participate. Simply show up at the southwest entrance of the Sherwood Park Mall (between Pier 1 Imports and Urban Planet).


Conditions 

In the case that there is mild rain (with no significant chance of lightning) and the temperature is warmer than -10 degrees and cooler than +27 degrees, then the walking group will walk outside and around Broadmoor Lake or Glen Allen Park, which of the two wil be decided and communicated in advance. 

If the temperature is outside of the temperature range stated above, then the group will stay within the Sherwood Park Mall to walk. 

Participation

Anyone with the ability to walk for extended periods of time is welcome to join. Use of walking aids such as walkers, canes, etc., is allowed and encouraged as necessary.

Walking Poles

The PCN Exercise Physiologist will occaissonally be able to provide a limited supply of walking polkes to lend to participants. If a participant requires walking poles or other walking aids on a consistent basis, they will be expected to bring their own. 

Occaisonal "Guest-stars"

To increase the PCN's community involvement, the vision of this group is to occaisionally invite medical professionals from various backgrounds to join participants to assist and engage with them on their way to a more active lifestyle. Examples could be Registered Dietitians, Pharmacists, Registered Nurses, Exercise Specialists and potentially even Physicians.
