West Park Wow Flyer

West Park Walk on Wednesdays (West Park WOW)

With the recent success of the Passport Program, where six new West Park businesses came together to promote themselves and each other, the team has decided to introduce a program for the summer called “West Park Walk on Wednesdays” (West Park WOW.). The new program began on May 23, and it continues on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month throughout the summer.

Each walk starts at one of several neighborhood businesses as shown in the flyer above, travels to another, possibly a third, and then returns to the first. Business owners at each stop will have a moment to introduce their businesses and offer a coupon, demonstration, or a taste to educate walkers about their products or services.

The larger educational component is that each walk will include a local professional or specialist walking along with the group, either answering questions or presenting information. Examples are a doctor, police officer, firefighter, historian, councilman, KCDC representative, etc.

The next one is on June 27, and begins in front of the Kamm's Corners Development Corporation (KCDC) Office Building,17407 Lorain Avenue. Steve Lorenz, KCDC Executive Director, will lead the group to West Park Massotherapy, 4168 Rocky River Drive. Then the group will end at Working Class Brewery, 17448 Lorain Avenue, in Kamms Plaza. Round trip, this walk covers about 1.2 miles on level ground. A new walk will take place on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month throughout the summer.

Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, the West Park Family YMCA, Kamm’s Corners Development, and the local merchants have come together to encourage exercise while educating local residents on subjects of interest as well as introducing them to local merchants they may not have visited. It is hoped the walks will attract a wide range of residents interested in learning more about their neighborhood while meeting some neighbors and achieving fitness goals.

Details about the walks can be found in the flyer as well as in our e-newsletter. Join us!
