Looking for a new route for your walk? To combat social isolation during the ongoing pandemic, St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care is inviting the community to walk the landscaped pathways at its Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Ave.
Community members can walk on weekends, during daylight hours; those coming on Friday mornings in September can walk and enjoy Free Refreshment Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon on Sept. 4, 11, 18 and 25. All minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Stop at the “Tiki Hut” gazebo just west of the building (enter on North 26th Street) to pick up a drink and a healthy snack. Information will also be available about St. Ann Center’s world-renowned day programs for children, frail elders and adults with disabilities.
Visitors must wear face coverings and observe social distancing from those not in their household, staying 6 feet away, to comply with COVID-19 safety guidelines. Please be aware the fenced-in playground equipment is for the nonprofit organization’s childcare participants only, and is not open to the public.
The paved walkways, suitable for strollers or wheelchairs, on the Bucyrus Campus’ 7.5-acre grounds cover one-third-mile, providing a safe and inviting place for people of all ages and abilities to get some exercise.
“We want neighborhood residents to know we are here for you,” said John Jansen, Vice President of Grants & Community Engagement. “Please come and use our outdoor walkway on weekends and September Fridays, to get some fresh air and exercise during these difficult times.”
