Walk It Off

We've been experiencing some pretty spectacular spring-like temperatures in OKC lately. Combine that with the extra hour of sun thanks to daylight savings time and you have no excuse for not getting outside and enjoying OKC's scenery. The City of Oklahoma City has a variety of in-park trails and walking paths located around the city for citizens to enjoy. With these paths open only to foot traffic, they're perfect for brisk exercise or just a nice evening stroll. No matter what side of town you're located on, there's undoubtedly a park with a walking path nearby. So lace up those sneakers, and shake off that winter funk by enjoying those extra rays of sunshine.
