Wellness Walking Programs

Passport to Family Wellness

Onondaga County Parks and Wegmans invite you to explore a world of opportunities for outdoor activity and personal wellness.

As part of Wegmans commitment to help local residents improve their lives through health and wellness activities they created the popular Eat Well, Live Well Passport to Family Wellness program.

The "Passports" offer a fun "out of the box" idea—designed to encourage exploration of local park trails. The pocket-sized trail "passport" includes easy-to-read maps, trail descriptions and a space to make a trail marker rubbing.  As you hike the trails, you will find a trail marker on a post approximately halfway along.WegmansPassportCoverA

You can also get a copy at your local Wegmans or pick one up at participating parks (books not available at Pratt's Falls Park): Beaver Lake Nature Center; Highland Forest; Jamesville Beach Park; Pratt's Falls Park; Onondaga Lake Park.

Once you have hiked at least 8 of the trails in the book, follow the instructions on page 1 in order to receive a coupon for Wegmans Produce and to be entered in our Grand Prize drawing.
