Parklands Explorer: Parklands History

In 2017 Parklands Explorers stomped, tromped, and pedaled every mile of Parklands trail while making new friends and burning over 85,000 calories. In 2018, Parklands Explorers will continue their focus on physical fitness, camaraderie, and exploration while also stretching their mental muscles, embarking on a pathway to wellness for body and mind. Join Parklands Interpretive Rangers on the second Saturday of each month to traverse a new hiking trail and delve into a related educational topic.

Did you know Seaton Valley used to be a golf course? Or, that the Silo Center was once a dairy farm? The Parklands is made up of nearly 4,000 acres stitched together with 80 different parcels of land, each with a unique story. Join Parklands Interpretive Rangers November 10 as we unravel some of these stories and explore the history of The Parklands. The group will meet at 10:00am at the Seaton Valley Trailhead in Turkey Run Park. Seaton Valley Trail is a 2.0-mile trail of easy difficulty on dirt surface path. Please come prepared for the weather with proper attire, hiking boots, water, and a snack.

We hope you will join us on this pathway to wellness as we improve mind, body, and spirit. Participation is FREE, we just ask that you bring a healthy sense of exploration and a sturdy pair of boots!
