Walking continues to be one of the top five popular outdoor recreational activities among adults. You can choose to join one of our Mall Walking programs or you can take advantage of one of numerous outdoor walking trails or tracks. The trails are a quarter mile long.
Denny Terrace Community Center Walking Trail & Outdoor Classroom
Located behind the Denny Terrace Community Center, 6429 Bishop Avenue, the nature trail is approximately two tenths of a mile. Approximately 400 feet is paved with recycled, rubberized material leading from the entrance of the trail, past an outdoor classroom. The paved portion allows for easy accessibility, as the surface is suitable for wheelchairs, canes, baby strollers, and anyone needing a smooth surface to walk on.
We are very proud of our neighborhood nature trail. With conservational efforts directing the trail project, we have created a safe space to observe nature and to provide for fun and respite for everyone. We anticipate the trail will provide more educational opportunities in the future with visits from the nearby Forest Heights Elementary School and participation from the neighborhood’s home schooled children. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the playground or nearby tennis courts in a serene, natural environment. Many thanks to the Richland County Conservation Commission for providing grant funding to initiate and help make the trail a reality.
Ridgewood Park Community Center Walking Trail
The walking trail is approximately a quarter of a mile in length. The trail is made of paved, recycled, rubberized material which allows for ADA accessibility and full participation of all our patrons. In addition to the walking trail, there are four exercise stations placed strategically along the trail to allow for a full body workout of 10 different, low-impact exercises. Enjoy the decorative lighting around the trail and relax on one of the four park benches located under the shade trees. Pack a lunch to enjoy at the picnic shelter and let the children play in the enclosed playground as you watch their every movement while walking along the trail. We thank Richland County Community Development and the Richland County Conservation Commission for their support in all enhancements to Ridgewood Park Community Center.
