Explore Elgin Parks Walking Tour

Elgin Parks and Recreation invites you to explore Elgin’s 77 parks and facilities as you walk to stay active this spring. The Explore Elgin Parks Walking Tour is designed to promote wellness by encouraging families and individuals to walk more often during the Stay at Home Order and beyond.

How many parks can you get to?

How to participate:

1. Download a map and a park tracker sheet of Elgin’s 77 public parks and facilities at cityofelgin.org/walkingtour.

2. Walk your way to your destination, take a selfie and post it to the Centre of Elgin Facebook Page @centreofelgin with hashtags #ExploreElgin and #ElginWalks.

Remember: Playgrounds are closed. Gathering in groups is prohibited. Maintain social distancing of six feet if passing others on your walk. It’s OK, and in fact it’s encouraged, to say hi and wave at your neighbors!

Go the extra mile and help beautify our City during your walk – its Earth Month after all!

Carry a bag along with you and help pick up litter along your walking route. You can help the Boys and Girls Club of Elgin achieve their goal of collecting 500 bags of garbage by Earth Day by uploading a photo of you with your trash bag to Facebook with #SlashtheTrash.
