National Walking Day 2022
Wednesday, April 20, 2022
Time: 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Lincoln Woods State Park, Lincoln (directions)
Join us at Rhode Island's first state park to celebrate National Walking Day! Staff from DEM divisions will be displaying information on what they do and resources on the Department's programs and initiatives. Only a short ride from Providence, Pawtucket, and Cumberland, Lincoln Woods State Park is a popular get away for northeastern Rhode Islanders. Over its century of public use, Lincoln Woods provided and continues to provide a scenic background for outdoor recreation in all seasons. The 2.5 mile walk will begin near the beach pavilion (look for signs). The walk will be rain or shine so dress accordingly! This might be a great opportunity to show off your best umbrella and duck boots. Plenty of parking is available and the walking loop is on a paved pathway, accessible to all.
This walk is part of DEM's Strategic Mission to promote and increase outdoor recreation in Rhode Island.
