Try some bench exercises while walking the dike

The Steps to Better Health walking group is open to all

As part of the Village’s age-friendly program, funded by the Ministry of Health, the successful Steps to Better Health walking group expanded in 2019.

Funding was provided to place signs along the dike, showing exercises which can be performed at the park benches.

The western end of the dike has a park bench with a map, some general instructions, and four exercises of the vitalia program and four exercises of the enduro program.

The vitalia program is well-suited for seniors while the enduro program is a better fit for younger walkers.

The Steps to Better Health walking group is open to everyone at no cost and meets in front of the Senior’s Centre, 421-7th Ave. at 9 a.m. on Tuesdays (30-minute walk) and Thursdays (60-minute walk).
