Water Walking

The Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department provides a variety of health and fitness programs including Water Walking.

About Water Walking

Join others for a quiet walk in our lazy river at Tropicanoe Cove. Walk with the current or against it to customize your workout. Water Walking increases your blood flow and warms your muscles and joints. An easy-going exercise for those who enjoy the outdoors.

Water Walking begins Saturday, May 25.  Check back later this month for the May/June calendar.
