As part of the FitPHX program, the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department will be enhancing walking paths at eight city parks, thanks to a $25,000 grant from Coca-Cola of Arizona. The grant also will help pilot a new walking program at sites around the city.

FitPHX, part of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, is planning and designing new signage and mileage markers at eight different city parks that have established walking paths. The city also will seek additional community partners to expand the WalkPHX program to other locations.

Coca-Cola’s grants are targeted for programs supporting active, healthy living.

Parks and Recreation is planning design and installation of the signage and mileage markers for spring 2014. In addition, FitPHX also is working to identify and establish an interactive walking program that all can use, and will create a webpage with all the WalkPHX sites.

FitPHX is a citywide initiative, led by Mayor Stanton, Councilman Valenzuela and Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman, with the goal of improving health and wellness in the region and making the Phoenix area one of the healthiest in the nation.

The program encourages residents to lead healthier lifestyles, focusing on childhood and adult obesity, nutrition education, active infrastructure, healthy worksites and encouraging the use of public transportation, bicycling and walking. For more information, visit phoenix.gov/fitphx.
