Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge is issuing a special invitation to residents of District 3 and others who love a very special place. On October 1st, the Councilwoman will host the 2011 District 3 Algonquin Park Festival.

“I have worked with Metro Parks to ensure that Algonquin Park remains a jewel in the city’s park system,” says Woolridge. “I want everyone to come out and see the improvements we have been working on and at the same time have a great day of fun.”

Joining Woolridge for the 2011 celebration will be Mayor Greg Fischer, Mike Heitz, Director of Metro Parks and Dr LaQuandra Nesbitt, the new Director of the Metro Public Health and Wellness Department.

“Dr. Nesbitt has the special honor of being the Grand Marshall for our Pathway Stroll through Algonquin Park,” says Woolridge. “This is a great way to walk through the park and get a little exercise. We will have health snacks along the way.”

Registration for the Pathway Stroll will be at 9:30am.

The Councilwoman has scheduled events all day in the park. The events range from healthy lifestyle information and health screenings to fun for the kids to a wide range of music and entertainment for all ages.
