Here are some of the highlights happening around the Larkspur and Corte Madera Twin Cities area August 14-15:
The Larkspur Walkers group was started 24 years ago by Nancy Spivey, a certified personal trainer. They meet all year round every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9-10 a.m. (plus Saturdays in nicer weather) at Piper Park in Larkspur.
Spivey originally worked as a Recreational Director for the Larkspur Recreation Department and continues her love of people, activity and fun with this tri-weekly walkers group. This walking group is sponsored by the Larkspur Recreation Department.
Meet at the east end of the parking lot, near the picnic area, at Piper Park at 8:55 a.m. for stretches and announcements of upcoming events. The group takes off at exactly 9 a.m. for a one-hour, three-mile, brisk and lively walk through the paths and byways of Larkspur and Corte Madera.
