Walk & Learn
Make physical activity fun and walk with us! Walking is an excellent and accessible form of exercise that’s free. Aim for 150 minutes per week of moderate physical activity or 30 minutes a day!
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, immediate benefits from physical activity include:
- Improved sleep quality
- Reduced feels of stress or anxiety (hello, mood booster!)
- Lower blood pressure
Extension has created colorful signs with activity challenges and nutrition and physical activity tips to encourage you to move more. Visit Carlinville Plaza and follow the signs around the Plaza, learn something new, and feel better with a casual stroll.
Find a Path
Currently, signs are located at Carlinville Plaza. Start on either side of the Plaza and don't forget the loop around Happy Dog Day Care & Huff's Bakery.
5 laps around the Plaza is equal to 1 mile.
Carlinville Plaza, Carlinville, IL 62626
