Walking is one of the most aerobic sports, and is widely promoted for its cardiovascular benefits, improved circulation, stress release, calorie burning (weight loss) and overall boost to mental and physical energy levels while improving your health and self-esteem.
Walking offers the same cardiovascular benefits that can be received from running. Participants can get an aerobic workout by simply putting one foot in front of the other and enjoying the magnificent scenery within the Miami-Dade Parks System!
Who Can Participate
Anyone and everyone.
Walking at a Miami-Dade Park is a year-round program. Recognition programs may be designed and initiated throughout the year by each individual facility, based on program participation.
Many Miami-Dade Parks offer walking paths through beautiful landscaping and scenery. Some of the parks have mileage signs posted. The posted mileage enables the Individual walker the opportunity to determine how far he or she has walked.
