Nice Day for a Walk

It’s the perfect time of year to get outside, go for a walk and breathe in the fresh spring air. There are many beautiful places to walk in Cambridge where you can enjoy seeing the greenery, the river, and the flowers in bloom. Try walking in some of the city parks such as Churchill, Riverside, or Soper – or try all of the parks and trails in Cambridge.

You could also see a little of the downtown core and try out the new pedestrian bridge that crosses the river between Founder’s Point (east bank) and the Cambridge Sculpture Garden (west bank). This bridge will also lead to the Old Post Office Library, which will be opening later this year.

If you’d like ideas for great walking routes in Cambridge, check out our books about trails and outings in Waterloo Region and beyond.

We also have pedometers you can check out with your card and keep for six weeks! The pedometer kit comes with a tracking sheet to mark your progress, as well as a package of four historical countryside tours in Waterloo region.

For rainy days, or days when you would rather stay in, try Leslie Sansone’s walking DVDs. These are perfect for people who think that they are uncoordinated or find it hard to keep up with fitness DVDs. These are very easy to follow, as they really only have four basic steps. My favourite one so far is Burn to the Beat, which is actually really fun. You will look forward to doing it, it’s true!

With so many wonderful options, it’s never been easier to go for a walk!
