The first Spokane Summer Parkways event is this Wednesday, June 22 in the Comstock/Manito Neighborhood from 6-9 p.m. The focus of Spokane Summer Parkways is on recreation, fitness, and community when stretches of roads are closed to vehicles and opened to bikes, pedestrians, skaters, and other human-powered transportation.
Physical fitness activities like yoga, Zumba, hula hoops, tai chi, fencing, dancing, Pilates, self defense, jump rope, hacky sack, and martial arts will be offered free along the course to encourage a healthy lifestyle for everyone. Folks of all ages and abilities may enter and exit the course at any point and enjoy these activities. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own games and hobbies along (e.g. picnics, music, chalk art, hopscotch, bubbles, juggling, jump rope, etc).
For more information, and a map of the roads to be closed, check out the Spokane Summer Parkways website.
