Healthy Living: Art in the Park


Experience the physical and mental benefits of recreating outdoors with this popular series for seniors which gets you outside to explore new parks and preserves, meet new people, and enjoy low-impact activity.

Research shows both positive mental and spiritual effects when people have access to nature. The therapeutic potential of natural parks relies on its complexity, mystery, and power — all elements that foster restorative effects in people. Relax. Observe. Breathe. And capture that feeling as we take a two-mile walk through this 7 Creeks Recreation Area wilderness preserve and then try our hand at “plein air” (open air) painting or drawing.

Free but registration required. Registration is available at the Healthy Living page.
