Celebrated annually on March 30, the unofficial holiday encourages people to get active and enjoy the physical and mental benefits that come from walking in nature.

Better Health

Studies have shown that walking for about 30 minutes a day can have huge health benefits. Walking can not only help burn calories and reduce weight, but can also lower the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancers. It can also increase heart activity and lower blood pressure.

Reduces Stress and Boosts Mood

Walking in nature - away from the dust and pollution of streets and cars - can boost moods and reduce stress. Studies have shown that people who hike or walk in green areas tend to be happier than those who don't.

Take a Walk in the Park Day is also sometimes known as National Take a Walk in the Park Day in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • This one's easy. Wear your finest walking shoes, leave your phone behind and breathe in the fresh air as you walk around your local park.
  • Recruit a good friend or a fun family member to accompany you on your walk. What better way to enjoy nature and maintain your health than to share it with a loved one?
