This Friday marks National Walk in a Park Day and Clarksville officials are inviting local citizens to participate in the event.
To celebrate the national holiday, the City of Clarksville’s Parks & Recreation Department and area business leaders will be walking from McGregor Park to the North Extension and back starting at noon.
Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan says walking is a great form of exercise and Friday’s community walk-a-thon will be the perfect opportunity for local citizens to enjoy McGregor Park or any of the city’s area parks or greenways.
For those residents who will plan to attend the walk are encouraged to submit their photos of walking in the park to the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department’s Facebook page for a chance to win a prize.
