Walk in the Park

At the Chiropractic Center of Kennesaw, we’re all about health and wellness. We believe that part of daily health and wellness includes daily exercise. Last year, we told all of our patients to, “Take a hike!” and shared some fun tips for getting out and getting active in the area. We have had so much fun encouraging everyone to take a hike, that we wanted to remind you that living an active lifestyle can be a walk in the park.

Again, walk the park is a common idiom like take a hike. And while it may refer to something being easy, we literally want to tell you to take a walk in the park! With the American Heart Association recommending at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, we think that taking a walk in the park is a great way to work toward that goal.

Hike Kennesaw, GA

Whether you hike or walk, you will be working toward getting the suggested amount of physical activity. To help encourage you to get out and literally take a take a walk in the park, we’ve got some helpful suggestions:

1. County Parks

There are plenty of opportunities to visit parks in Cobb County. With 38 parks listed in the Cobb County Parks and Facilities Directory, there are plenty of locations for more than just walking to take place. Facilities exist for soccer, softball, play, and more!

2. National Parks

Kennesaw is home to a park maintained by the National Park Service. If you’ve not stopped by Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, then you are in for a treat. This is a great location for those that like a little more difficulty in their walk as a walk up the mountain is more like a hike. We should also mention that this is a great day trip for history lovers.

3. Walk for a Cause

Atlanta is a great location for numerous 5K events. These are a great way to help raise funds and awareness for a variety of organizations. Check out this database of local 5Ks for running or walking. Exercising is a great thing, but exercising for a cause equals two great things!
