NDD Walking Club
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NDD Walking Club has been postponed until further notice.
Check back at a later date for a chance to get some fresh air, exercise, and fun.
The NDD Walking Club is a great way to keep fit and meet downtown neighbors, while also providing a chance to see the beautiful architecture, horticulture, and other sights the downtown has to offer.
The NDD Walking Club season typically runs from May through October and offers three different walks every day between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm, each taking a distinct route. During these walks participants receive health tips from a certified instructor and learn new exercises to keep their bodies in motion.
The NDD Walking Club is free and open to all and has attracted a variety of members from residents to employees to students. All participants are eligible to collect NDD Walking Club gear, including water bottles, string backpacks, and t-shirts. As an incentive to increase the health benefits of walking, each NDD Walking Club season ends with prizes for healthy accomplishments, such as the most walks attended, most steps taken, most weight lost, and so forth.
