This past Sunday, I joined the Freewalkers for its Stroll & Roll walking event.  Freewalkers Yohana Maria and Risa Olinsky organized the festivities, now in its second year. 

The walk, designed to be family-friendly, and for people of all ages and abilities, began in Echo Lake Park, another gem in the Union County Park system.  The four-mile round trip trek also cut through Lenape Park, and onto the East Coast Greenway.

Luckily, the rain held off except for a few sprinkles so that families were able to enjoy some time in nature, and seeing the autumn shades in the trees.  Along the way, there were some fun activities; we had the chance to write on a chalkboard “Why Walk,” and kids had the opportunity to have their passports stamped at each station.  The turnaround point on the greenway was in the “Balloon Forest."

Maria thanked Edward Alligier, a.k.a. Batman, "proving that Superheroes (like Freewalkers) walk, too!”  Music at the event was provided by DJRYISFLY.
