About the Holiday

Take a Walk in the Park Day encourages you to get out and enjoy a walk in the great outdoors. Walking outside benefits the mind and body. It helps clear your head while burning some calories and getting fresh air. Per a MelindaMyers.com article: "Research funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development found "kids spend 2 hours less per week outdoors than they did 20 years ago. With this decrease in outdoor activity comes an increase in health problems, including obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Kids that spend time outdoors in gardens and nature are more focused, perform better in school and have less problems with ADD symptoms. And all of us feel the benefit as our blood pressure is lowered and mood improved."

Whether you are an adult or child make today a day you get out and take a walk to a near by park. Chances are you'll find a city park or even a state or national park to walk or hike at. Below are are some websites that will help you locate a park close by:

Per Geography.com "The first national parks to be founded in the U.S. were Yellowstone (1872) followed by Yosemite and Sequoia (1890)." 4 of the top 5 largest national parks in the U.S. are in Alaska. See 20 largest national parks in the United States
