Woodland Walkers Continues Weekly Strides

The Woodlawn Wednesday Walkers program runs through October 26. A 2-mile walk around the interior perimeter of the cemetery is held each Wednesday starting at 9:00 a.m.

This popular program will soon reach 6,000 miles logged from 210 participants over the past 10 years. This year’s intrepid “Woodlawn Walkers” will once again log hundreds of miles on the beautiful grounds, enjoying wildlife, flora and plenty of Toledo history along the way. A “Tree of the Week” is highlighted, engaging walkers with facts and folklore about the arboretum’s collection they pass along the way. Over the weeks, they form warm friendships, gain horticultural knowledge, engage in the historical history of Toledo, hatch creative ideas and continue a wonderful tradition at Woodlawn.

Whether you’re interested in a stroll or a power walk, drop in for a week or come all five months. Get healthy and rejuvenated as you walk among the beautiful arboretum and the historical architectural features.

Historic Woodlawn Cemetery and Arboretum is a National Historic Site with more than 160 acres of scenic and rolling hills. Woodlawn, a private, nonprofit cemetery, has over 40 acres of burial space available, a mausoleum and cremation niches and is open to people of all spiritual beliefs and ethnicities. It is located at 1502 W. Central Ave., Toledo.
