Spree for All
The two-month Summit Metro Parks hiking event on flat and easy trails, has begun and will continue through July 31. The spree includes 12 different trail options that are great for families with young children and those who use wheelchairs, walkers and canes. Exclusively this year, the park district is offering an option to complete the spree online from home by watching the 360-degree trail videos. To participate in the event, download a hiking form at www.summitmetroparks.org/spree-for-all.aspx or pick one up at any Acme Fresh Market store in Summit County. Then earn rewards – free to Summit County residents – by completing five hikes, which could be on the same spree trail or a combination of different spree trails. Participants who watch five trail videos may also receive spree rewards. A new trail video will be released each week for the next five weeks, beginning with the Rock and Herb Garden at F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm in Akron. Out-of-county residents pay to receive their rewards ($10 for first-year hikers, $5 for veteran hikers). This year’s pin features a native frog. For more information, call 330-867-5511.
