Winter Activity Ideas
Don’t let the cooler temps and shorter days prevent you from staying active. Find something you enjoy and reap the physical and mental health benefits of movement!
~ Winter Walks are refreshing and invigorating. Enjoy the seasonal beauty of the Charles River pathway, the city’s local parks, Gore Place, or Mount Auburn Cemetery. Or explore the city’s neighborhood routes and its many hills – great for getting your heart rate up (City map with neighborhoods HERE), Commit to getting outside every day for at least 10 minutes.
Watch for updates about our next Walk with a Doc/Just Walk series and spring YardArt walks!
~ Snowshoeing is a fun activity to try when there is snow on the ground! Find a trail or snow-covered green space to create a path and enjoy the fresh winter air! You can rent snowshoes at Gore Place (information HERE), borrow them from the Watertown Public Library’s Library of Things (information HERE), or buy them at a local sporting goods store or on-line (check out local sites for reused items).
