Blank Park Zoo's Walking Club Starts May 1!
What better way to get fit than to do so while in the presence of some of the world’s most captivating animals? Walking Club is one of the many perks that comes along with being a Blank Park Zoo member. Designed specifically for Zoo members, Walking Club is a fun opportunity for you to get outside and move among Iowa’s wildest creatures.
Participate in Walking Club on the Zoo paths throughout the week and log your distance any time during the Zoo’s business hours throughout the summer. You can also enjoy early entrance to the Zoo on Thursday mornings at 8 am, before the Zoo opens and becomes crowded with visitors. This allows for a peaceful walk in a quiet setting, although you may hear the animals as they wake up in the morning!
Walking Club is in session May-September and the kickoff for our 2014 season will be Thursday, May 1 at 8 am. Come and meet zoo staff and other walking club members while enjoying small snacks and refreshments.
Take a walk on the wild side and get fit at Blank Park Zoo!
