Walk with a Doc


Lindberg Park
1151 N Marion St
Oak Park, IL 60302

Join Dr. Carlos Reynes as you walk in Lindberg Park on the 3rd Saturday of each month throughout Spring, Summer and Fall. Enter off Le Moyne Parkway  and sign in at the covered picnic area.

According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact and easier on the joints than running.  With your doctor’s permission, walking is a safe form of exercise for people with orthopedic ailments and heart conditions, and for those who are more than 20% overweight.  Research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?

Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer! While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by local physicians.
