Walk With a Doc, or a gardener, or a librarian, or a…you get the idea!

wwad2We walk weekly at 11am on Wednesdays

We just read the Dekalb Neighbor newspaper and saw that Decatur was recognized for its walkability! City manager Peggy Merris says, “We’ve realized now that walkability is a health issue, a quality of life issue and an important issue that we as a city will continue to support.” Read more: Neighbor Newspapers – City of Decatur recognized for walkability

So if you are ready to walk come join us; any Wednesday at 11am at the Decatur Recreation Center you can find us heading out on our weekly walk. Today we are combing red/gold routes to see the new construction in town at Ebster gym/pool, Beacon Hill, and the new Police Station. Join us. We always walk with CAPS (volunteer public safety escorts) and we use these city routes:
