WALK THE BAYFRONT
'Walk with a Doc' kicks off at 8:00 a.m. at The Water's Edge Park, located at 602 S. Shoreline Blvd. The health and wellness event is free of charge, and everyone is welcome to Walk the Bayfront.
'Walk with a Doc' is a doctor-led group with a fun and safe place to go for a walk, learn about health, and make new friends.
"On August 13, Nueces County Medical Society President and local pediatrician Dr. Sonia Mathew will present information about the benefits of walking," said city officials.
Organizers said future walks would be held on the 2nd Saturday of every month.
"Walk the Bayfront along our Fitness Lane route, which begins along the seawall at The Water's Edge, northbound, towards the American Bank Center, with the turnaround just before the barge dock entrance," said city officials.
Participants can walk, jog, run, or bike along the event's designated 1.5-mile fitness lane (one way). Registration is not required to walk along the Bayfront, and community partner, H-E-B, will provide fruit and water for all participants.
