Event Details

When you arrive at the park, make sure to park at the west entrance, which is off of Manhattan Dr. This road is off of Cascade, three streets west of the East Beltline. We will be starting out at the covered pavilion. You can check out this map for further details.

All you need to bring for the event is your child(ren) in your stroller, toys and snacks for them during class, a water bottle, a diaper bag if needed, and a mat or towel for core work on the ground. Your stroller does not need to be a jogging stroller, just one that does not tip easily. Stroller Strides is for any children 6 weeks of age and older.

Make sure to wear comfortable clothes for exercising in. You may want to dress both yourself and your child in layers as it warms up for the afternoon.

Your child(ren) must stay in the stroller at all times during the class – we wouldn’t want them to get hurt while we are exercising! The group will do lots of fun songs and games to keep them entertained. And there will be plenty of activities for them afterward as a reward for sitting still!

Stroller Strides is designed to be a flexible class for moms with their children so if your child gets fussy, there is no problem if you need to step away from the group for a while and join up  later.
