Spring is here. It’s time to join the Recreation Department on our mission to keep the community active with our “Be Active, Be Healthy” movement. We are once again teaming up with the Westfield Running Company to make this another great event for the community.

Our goal is to get as many families out and walking/running at our Annual “Run The Park” Road Race on Sunday, May 22. We need the support from area residents and sponsors to help us get families moving.

We greatly appreciate everyone's participation and hope that residents are willing to give back to our community by participating in our annual race this May. Our 1-Mile Family Run/Walk encourages family participation from local residents of all ages and abilities, and the 5K race assures a more competitive venue.
