Parks and Rec Employees invited the public for an organized walk and exercise event at a park.
In honor of World Health Day, the City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department invited the public to join its staff at Tiguex Park for a lunch break organized walk and exercise event.
Stopping at a park for just 30 minutes a day can help you stay active and healthy. In parks across the city, residents can walk, run, play a sport or use circuit exercise machines. Those machines are available in 12 parks and combined with walking or running, provide a balanced workout, even when you’re on a tight deadline.
In honor of World Health Day, Parks and Recreation is also launching our Meet Me at the Park summertime social media campaign. Residents are asked to head to their favorite Albuquerque park and take a selfie to show why they love that location. Residents can use the campaign hashtags to encourage others to take part, like #BeInspired and #MeetMeAtThePark. The campaign is in conjunction with the National Recreation and Park Association. The cities with the most social media mentions will win $20,000 to go toward renovating a park of the city’s choosing. You can find more information at https://www.meetmeatthepark.org/
The City of Albuquerque and Mayor Richard J. Berry are committed to helping residents reach their wellness goals. Our 288 parks and approximately 29,000 acres of Open Space are great places to start.
