The Transcona Trails are alive with the sounds of walkers.

Since June, seniors in Transcona have taken to the trails in order to remain active and social, as well as to explore their community.

About a dozen walkers attended the Aug. 21 walk, which began at the corner of McMeans Avenue West and Hoka Street, and ventured west to the Rotary Tall Grass Prairie Nature Park. The turnout was the group’s highest yet, according to organizer Karen Janzen of the River East-Transcona Healthy Aging Resource Team.

The walks leave from a different location each week in order to give walkers a different perspective of the trail with every new walk.

The walks will continue next Wednesday, with walkers meeting at George Olive Park (McMeans Avenue East at Alex Taylor Drive). The walks leave at 10:30 a.m., and walkers head out for 30 minutes in one direction before returning.

The group has also planned to continue meeting into September, but meeting places have yet to be determined.

For more information on the walks, contact the River East-Transcona Healthy Aging Resource Team at 204-940-2114 or Winnipeg Regional Health Authority community facilitator Stacy Boone at 204-938-5305.
