Safe Seniors Walks

Join us for the Safe Seniors Walk, a bi-weekly guided walk or bike/e-bike ride with an Enforcement Officer and Park Patrol. Starting Thursday, June 13th, we meet every second Thursday from June to September at 10 am. Each meeting is held at a different location throughout our trail systems, each with its own difficulty level.

But that’s not all! On the last day of every month, we hold a Safe Seniors “Mug Up”. These special walks are a little longer than an hour, and halfway through the walk, we stop for a boil-up, cup of tea/coffee, and snacks. It’s a wonderful opportunity to chat and connect with fellow walkers before we return.

Our Next Walk – Thursday, June 27th

Location: Sunrise Trails
Meeting Place: Town Square on Richard Nolan Drive
Difficulty: Level 1 | Approx. 40 mins

Walk Levels

To ensure everyone can participate safely, we have defined three levels of difficulty:

  • 1- Very easy: Straight, flat, hard-packed or paved surface.
  • 2- Easy to Medium: Small rises/mostly flat, may include boardwalks, hard-packed or paved surfaces.
  • 3 – Moderate: Small rises or dips, a mixture of surfaces, may take slightly longer.

The location and meeting area will be set by the Wednesday of the week before each walk.

Safe Seniors Mug-Ups

Our Safe Seniors Mug-ups take place on the last day of every month. Come for the walk, stay for the company and the good cheer!
