We have 2 walking groups: Leisure Walkers and Intermediate and Fast Walkers. Spring and summer walks are mainly taken along the many pathways around Calgary and are selected for the scenery and interest they offer to seniors. Starting points vary and participants are expected to reach these points by their own arrangements. Join the group which best meets your needs. Both groups are welcoming and social.
The Leisure Walks are usually 5 - 6 km and 1½ hour long. We walk at a comfortable pace and socialize on the way. We cover many of the pathways in Fish Creek Provincial Park and some areas in the South of Calgary.
There are no walks for the Leisure Walkers during the winter months. Those who wish to walk, follow the winter schedule for the Fast and Intermediate Walkers. Our group will start again on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Watch for information closer to the date.
