Parks Commission discusses proposed Berlin Fun Walk

BERLIN—The
Parks Commission discussed a proposal to host a second annual Berlin Fun Walk
with the Worcester County Health Department and a proposed ordinance to amend
the town’s parks rules during its Sept. 3 meeting.

Deputy
Administrator Mary Bohlen, liaison to the commission, said the ordinance
proposal was prompted by recent complaints from park patrons, including one
regarding unauthorized activity on park property. The proposal would
reestablish what types of activities are allowed on park grounds and is on the
agenda for the Sept. 9 town council meeting, Bohlen said.

Kerri Daye,
coordinator of special programs for the Worcester County Health Department, used
a presentation to the commission to propose hosting a second “Just Walk
Program.” The program is a self-directed, self-reported plan conducted in
Stephen Decatur Park last year.

Commission
members said they were willing to go forward with the proposal and, if
approved, the event would be Nov. 9, with a rain date of Nov. 16. Registration
would begin at 9 a.m. and a group warm up would take place at 9:30 a.m.

The event drew
31 participants last year, Daye said.
