Kern Pavilion open Monday, Thursday mornings for winter walking, jogging opportunities
Now that winter has set in and many area citizens are trying to keep those New Year’s resolutions of being more active, the Frankenmuth Parks and Recreation Department is announcing a new winter walking opportunity.
Beginning on Monday, January 16, Heritage Park’s Harvey Kern Community Pavilion will be open on a trial basis for walking and jogging from 9-11am on Mondays and Thursdays.
The 12-year-old structure will be open to the public, free of charge, on those two days of the week. Strollers are welcome; however, rollerblades, bicycles and other similar equipment will not be allowed.
If local schools are closed due to weather on one of the scheduled days, Kern Pavilion will be closed as well.
For those that are interested in knowing the distance they walk or run, one lap on the inside of the 30,000-square foot building is approximately 1/10th of a mile.
“It’s not an indoor track, but it is out of the wind, with no snow or ice to worry about, and warmer than outside,” Kern Pavilion Manager Kellie Nichols said.
For more information, contact the Frankenmuth Parks and Recreation Department (652-3440.)
