Suffern Installs New Village Walking Loop To Promote Fitness

Posted on 29 April 2017 by Editor

Village of Suffern Mayor Ed Markunas wants to create a communal spirit while making it easier for residents to stay fit. The Village recently collaborated with Good Samaritan Hospital and the Rockland County Health Department to install a marked walking loop around the village downtown area.

The Walking Loop had its ribbon cutting last Wednesday, April 26, with Rockland County Executive Ed Day, RC Department of Health Deputy Commissioner Catherine Johnson Southren, and Good Samaritan Hospital CEO Dr. Mary Leahy all marking the occasion.

Mayor Markunas will promote the Walking Loop by leading a series of Wednesday in May community walks, beginning this coming Wednesday, May 3, and continuing every Wednesday through the end of the month. The walks begin at 10 a.m. with meet ups at Suffern Village Hall.

    As a member of a local walking group I would like to know the distance this loops covers. Does it have mile markers each 10th of a mile (like Saddle River Park) or each mile (like Rockland Lake)?

  2. Editor Says:

    Not certain about that information. But if you call the Village of Suffern Recreation Department at 845-357-7943 you may get those details. Or email Cathym@SuffernVillage.com. I believe the Walking Loop is marked though.
