In its commitment to promote fitness and wellness within the community, Hempfield recCenter, 950 Church Street in Landisville, is happy to announce a series of new outdoor programs aimed at providing free fitness opportunities and family events in two area parks.

Beginning Saturday, June 2 at 8:00 am and continuing on July 7 and August 4, Amos Herr Park in East Hempfield Township will be the setting for free, No Equipment Needed exercise classes. Each 45-minute class will include basic moves that beginning to advanced exercisers will enjoy along with body weight exercises to work all major muscles groups.

Following the No Equipment Needed class, at 8:45 am certified instructors will lead a free Yoga in the Park class. Improve your flexibility and balance while building strength and lowering your stress level, all from the tranquility and beauty of Amos Herr Park. Participants are asked to bring their own mat or towel and water.

On June 9, July 14 and August 11, the classes and times remain the same but the setting changes as we move to Silver Spring Park in West Hempfield Township for more fun and exercise in the sun.

On Thursday evening, June 21, Hempfield recCenter invites you to Grubb Lake in West Hempfield Township for a Family Scavenger Hunt with Nature Trivia. Families will be given a list of items to track down throughout the area. Found “treasures” will be displayed and discussed before taking part in some nature trivia.

A second round of trivia and scavenger hunt will be held on Thursday, July 26 at Amos Herr Park in East Hempfield Township. Both events are free, beginning at 7:00 pm, and include a moderate amount of walking. Participants are asked to bring collection containers.

Discover our beautiful parks and connect with neighbors and friends during the new Amos Herr Park Walk for Wellness. Beginning June 5 and running every Tuesday and Thursday at 9:15 am through August 28, you decide the pace and distance as you strut the park’s popular walking trails.

The park classes are new to this year’s slate of activities presented by the nonprofit organization and are aimed at strengthening individual’s, families’ and children’s appreciation of wellness along with promoting a sense of community belonging.
