​Discover Thornton Community Walks

9 a.m.


On Saturday, March 10 we will meet near the pavilion in King Ranch Park, located at 7748 E. 122nd Place.   To get there take 120th Street east to Quebec; go north on Quebec to 122nd Avenue.  Turn east on 122nd, and continue straight east as you go through the roundabout and you will come to Syracuse St.  King Ranch Park is right in front of you; turn left on Syracuse and park anywhere on the street around the park.  The pavilion is on the north side of the park.  This month's walk will be approximately 2-6 miles in duration; it's an out & back course so that you can turn around wherever you choose and return the same way we came.  This walk is all on paved concrete and features one long hill towards the end.   We will depart promptly at 9 a.m. so please don't be late.  Please remember to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.  If you are interested in participating in the program but can't come on March 10th, 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 April  event will be held on Saturday, April 14th.


The "Discover Thornton" Community Walk program is intended 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 county.  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.
