Albany Southeast Parks Year Round Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles), 6 km. (3.7 miles), or 10 km. (6.2 miles), all rated easy.
This revised year-round walk goes to new areas including parks and quiet residential neighborhoods. Portions of it include a bike path, lake and canal with a variety of wildfowl. This is a pleasant walk with lots of greenery. Members of the Albany Fitwalkers may join us.
Those people wanting to carpool to Albany should plan to be at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably decide to have lunch together at an Albany restaurant; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker. Return to Springfield will be around 2:30 p.m.
People driving to Albany on their own for the walk should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 9 a.m. at the start point, the Brookdale Villa Courtyard at 1929 Grand Prairie Road SE in Albany.
