On the Town Connector Trail

Meet up at Town Hall, 1449 Valkaria Road

Join the Trails and Greenways Committee and help Team Grant-Valkaria get points for the Mayors’ Fitness Challenge

Everyone is welcome

– bring water –

Join us here in the park (1449 Valkaria Road) at 6pm this Friday. The walk is approximately 4 miles roundtrip. If that is too strenuous, just do the one-mile Bird Island Trail loop in the back of the park. Bird Island Trail is marked with yellow-topped wooden posts.

We will take a quick photo for our Mayors’ Fitness Challenge and then begin our group hike.

Hike Directions:

From the large pavilion here in the park, we will walk to the back of the park and exit, turn Left on Farnsworth, then Right on Corey Rd. The Town Connector Trail starts where Corey Road ends. We will then walk the length of the unpaved Town Connector Trail and turn around and retrace our steps back to the park. The trail is still awaiting signage, but patrons are welcome to hike, bicycle, and take horses on it at this time.

Join us and see the new trail!

Call Rebekah at 951-1380 if you have questions.

A March 30 "Sunset Walk" at the Grant-Valkaria Community Park is planned as a Mayor's Fitness Challenge event. 
This will be a "WALK WITH FLORIDA TODAY" event. Bob Gabordi, Executive Editor of FLORIDA TODAY will be the "host".  The walk will start at 5:30 pm. The plan is to walk the newly marked 1 mile "Bird Island Trail" and part of the new Valkaria Road multi-use path. The trail goes around the back of the park where you will see the sunset and the bird shenanigans on "Bird Island" as they come home to roost.  The Town will get extra points if at least 50 people participate in this - they don't have to be registered - so get the word out and bring your friends!! Come to the Grant-Valkaria Community Park where the trail starts - 1449 Valkaria Road - Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and your Mayor's Fitness Challenge shirt if you have one! Bring a water bottle.
Mark the Date - Friday, March 30, 5:30 pm, meet us at 1449 Valkaria Road in the Large Pavilion.


Health First Mayors' Fitness Challenge - You Can Still Register!
Twelve Mayors in Brevard are challenging their citizens to get involved in a healthy competition – the Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge. Each Mayor will assemble the largest possible group of people from the community to form a city team. Everyone who joins for a municipality is considered part of that mayor's "team."  All you have to do is start moving and track it! The winning team will be determined by the total number of minutes exercised by the members of each team. The municipality with the most points will win the challenger trophy, “Most Fit City 2018.”

The challenge begins on Saturday, February 3 and runs through April 28, 2018. Be sure to choose “Grant-Valkaria” for your team.

Registration is ongoing throughout the challenge. We need YOU! To register: Click here for more details.
