CUYAHOGA FALLS — Nine neighborhood walking trails will officially launch at 10 a.m. Saturday.
“The neighborhood walking trails reinforce the city’s commitment to the health of our community and to bringing city programs and services into our neighborhoods,” stated Mayor Don Walters. “We all know that regular physical activity is important to our physical and mental health and well-being, and this will allow neighbors an opportunity to strengthen community relationships while being physically active.”
The Cuyahoga Falls Neighborhood Walking Trails range from one mile to 1.5 miles and are marked at one-quarter mile intervals. The walking trail project was spearheaded by Natatorium programming supervisor Karyn Petty.
“As we offer these new walking trails throughout the city, we hope to allow people to get out and walk at their own pace, and have a measurable distance to walk locally,” stated Petty. “The walking trails also offer the added benefit of increasing a sense of community in our neighborhoods.”
