Get Outside for National Take a Walk in the Park Day!

We’re all about a fun holiday in the Community Services Department, especially when it has to do with our parks!

Today is National Take a Walk in the Park Day, and we are so excited to get outside and enjoy the beautiful parks and trails in Southlake. Our residents are lucky to have many community and neighborhood parks to explore. From the award-winning Bicentennial Park and gorgeous Bob Jones Nature Center to the tucked-away Liberty Park at Sheltonwood, there’s a park for everyone!

If you want to incorporate retail therapy into your walk, visit any of our four public parks in Town Square! Rustin, Family, Summit, and Cornish parks are all conveniently close to your favorite Southlake businesses! If you like a beautiful water feature during your walk, check out Chesapeake Park and walk around the pond. Liberty Park at Sheltonwood offers a peaceful trail that leads to a beautiful pavilion and footbridge!

Walking outside is an incredible wellness habit to incorporate into your daily routine. Going for a walk outdoors, especially in a beautiful public park, can help you relax, clear your mind, and soak up some much-needed Vitamin D. Bring your family or friends along for a healthy alternative to going to a restaurant to catch up!

Make walking in the park a part of your wellness routine, and track every mile during the Fit City Challenge! Where are you going for a walk today?
