Docs in the Park

The Murrysville Recreation Department is partnering with local physicians to offer a FREE walking program where the community can enjoy a walk in the great outdoors with friends, family and neighbors while conversing with physicians on a variety of health related topics.

Doctors are now prescribing nature and outdoor activities for their patients, but why? Spending time outdoors relieves stress, combats obesity, and has shown to have positive improvements in health overall. How can you incorporate outdoor activity in your life? Attend one or all of our sessions of Docs in the Park!
