Whenever I go to one of the many gorgeous Forsyth County parks, I am struck by nature's simplistic, but amazing beauty. Currently there are 17 Forsyth County parks, with seven new parks in progress (see map below). And it's all there for us to enjoy for free!
But they don't magically appear. There is a whole group of community members that make this all happen for us - the Forsyth County Parks Foundation, Inc (www.forsythcountyparks.org). Their mission is to enhance the recreational, educational and cultural life of Forsyth County by encouraging and soliciting support for the county’s parks system.
Want to help beautify and support our community and have fun at the same time? This next Sunday, April 28th, you can participate in the 3rd Annual Boulder Dash 5K Fitness Run/Walk and Corporate Challenge. All of the proceeds will benefit the Forsyth County Parks Foundation. The race will be held at Lafarge Quarry and Northside Hospital-Forsyth. For more information and to register visit www.boulderdash5k.com.
See you there!
