Did you know that one of the single best things you can do for your health is a 30-minute daily walk in the park? Just being in nature leads to lower rates of depression and anxiety as well as higher quality of sleep. Additionally, regular physical activity leads to improved physical condition and cardiovascular health, improved mood and an increase in the development of neural connections. Kirkland has dozens of parks from small pocket parks to waterfront parks to large community parks with a variety of amenities like sports fields, playgrounds, picnic areas and trails. Get to know your neighbors today in one of your local area parks. Or better yet, volunteer with the Green Kirkland Partnership to help with forest restoration!
