Walking Program for Seniors
Senior Active Healthy Living Walking Program
In partnership with Bedford Parks and Recreation Department, the Hampshire Dome and the NH WellPoint Foundation are delighted to co-sponsor a program to enable local citizens’ 70-years and up from surrounding communities to walk the cushioned track at the Dome for free this winter. Our Active, Healthy Living Program makes it possible for seniors to keep active, maintain their physical conditioning, and enjoy the unique environment the Dome offers during the most challenging weather months.
The program is available to residents of Amherst, Bedford, Brookline, Hollis, Lyndeborough, Mason, Milford, Mont Vernon and Wilton.
In announcing the program, Rick Katzenberg, President of the NH WellPoint Foundation said “I am thrilled by the eager cooperation of the Hampshire Dome in enabling this exciting program to be opened to our local seniors. We have tested it on a small scale but this multi-community rollout will make healthy exercise an easy and safe option for those who enjoy outdoor walking the rest of the year. In addition to providing healthy exercise, the social benefits during winter months when folks fell constrained to their living area is also a great addition. We look forward to a great many individuals and small groups taking advantage of this generous offer by The Hampshire Dome and our foundation.”
The Dome will generally available for walking (except during special events) from 11 AM until 2 PM weekdays. It is important that you check the Daily Schedule or call in as there will be days we will not be able to open.
