Happenings at the Park

by Kate Galer on April 3, 2017

Well, it looks like Spring is finally here to stay ( jinxed it) and it is time to get out to the Park and enjoy!

Saturday April 8 – BOOT CAMP!

All Level Boot Camp at 8AM

Kick off your weekend JUST RIGHT with Kim & Connie who will be leading an All Level Boot Camp on Saturday mornings this Spring through the Summer!
Push yourself in new ways from cardio relays to strength building circuits (and everything in between)! Bringing a community of people together to form a support system in reaching our goals, so bring friends, family, and neighbors and be ready to work up a good sweat. Learning moves you can take anywhere and finding your inner strength that is Stronger Than Your Excuses.
We will work for 45 minutes to an hour and be sure to stretch it out together as we finish. With challenging moves, we will also have modifications and adjustments for each exercise and person, giving you the personal training experience that pushes us along! Classes are $15 with 40% of the proceeds being donated to the Friends of Linwood Park! Win/win! We have already put some of this money right back into the park and purchased new hand pruners. No need to register, you can pay at the time of the class. Bring an exercise mat or towel. This class will be Saturdays through the spring and summer. Please be sure to check for any weather cancellations on our facebook page or make sure you get our emails at linwood.park@gmail.com

From the Instructor, Kim: “I have worked at Fit Tribe in Havertown (small group training) and now, currently, I work at both the YMCA in Havertown and Focus Fitness in Bryn Mawr. I instruct group training boot camps, 1-on-1 personal training, Spin classes, TRX classes and combinations of them all. I have a AAAI certification and am working to get more certifications and better myself as an instructor!
My biggest reason I do this work is simply because of keeping people happy and getting them to form a community that keeps them wanting to come back and work together.”

SATURDAY APRIL 22ND FROM 9-12 – EARTH DAY GARDEN CLEAN UP AND MULCHING!

Great gardens need good mulching! Join the Friends of Linwood Park this Earth Day and help us to weed and mulch the Park so the garden can thrive and look as awesome as it does every year. A good garden attracts pollinators, birds, crittters of all kinds, and happy people! We will have gloves and tools (or bring your own labeled please) and snacks! Please bring a refillable water bottle as we would love to eliminate plastic water bottles from the Park.

ALL WELCOME, KIDS TOO! No experience necessary, we will teach you what the weeds are and how to mulch the proper way, especially around newly emerging perennials and established trees. Come when you can, leave when you must! Can’t volunteer time that day? We always welcome snack donations!

SATURDAY APRIL 22ND – BOOK READING WITH NAHJEE GRANT and DONATION

For the months of April and May, local children’s book author Nahjee Grant, will be donating a portion of his sales from his site www.coolsmartkid.com to the Friends of Linwood Park!
Come Saturday the 22nd in the afternoon for a book reading with Nahjee and visits by the LMPD community officers. Exact time TBA!
