​Discover Thornton Community Walks

August 19

8 a.m.


Please join me for the August Community Walk on Saturday, August 19. We will meet at the Eagleview Elementary School park pavilion. To get to Eagleview, take Colorado Boulevard to Summit Grove Parkway; turn east and follow this street until you come to the school parking lot – it will be on your left/north side of the street. We will depart promptly at 8 a.m. so don’t be late. This route can range from 2 - 7 miles, so everyone can go as far as feels good on that day. This trail will be primarily paved and relatively flat. Please remember to dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes. If you are interested in participating in the community walk program but can’t come on August 19, please make sure we have your e-mail address and we will keep you apprised of the dates, locations and distances for upcoming walks. Please send those inquiries to The September event will be held on Saturday, September 16, when we will return to the 9 a.m. start time.

This is a monthly fitness program designed to help you develop or maintain a consistent fitness program. City of Thornton Recreation Staff will lead the walk each month. These treks will be of varying distances and will explore the many different trails around the community. Come alone or bring your spouse, your neighbors, your children and/or your dog. This is an opportunity to pursue your fitness goals, meet some new people and enjoy the trails of Thornton. These walks are free and open to anyone who can physically complete the distance. These are “no frills” events, so bring what you will need (water bottle, pet pick-up bags, etc.) for the duration of each month’s walk.
