The Berks County Parks and Recreation Department has joined the statewide effort with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the PA Medical Society, to advance health and wellness through nature by hosting a “Walk with a Doc” program on Saturday, September 25, 2020 beginning at 1pm.
Walkers of all ages are encouraged to join local pediatrician Dr. Robert Cordes on a 2 mile round trip hike on the Union Canal Connector trail starting at the Army Corps of Engineers Swiftwater Lane parking area, 200 Swiftwater Lane, Leesport.
The hike will highlight natural features and includes a slight hill. Parks staff member Kathy Grim will also share several historic points of interest along the trail. The path is suitable for strollers and well-behaved leashed pets.
The event will be held rain or shine. There are no restroom facilities available at the location of the trail. It is recommended to bring along a water bottle and good walking shoes.
