Community Walking

  • Get out of the cold this winter, and join the PCSD for our Community Walking program, conveniently located at our three high schools. 

    Anyone in the community is invited to come, exercise, and stay healthy during these cold winter months! Available to residents of Parma, Parma Heights & Seven Hills!

    • Community walkers are welcome in our buildings on Monday and Thursday nights, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.
    • Sign-in is required at each building at the designated entrance, listed below.
    • The PCSD Community Walking nights will be available through mid-April.
    • Children 12 and under must have adult supervision.
    • Some schools are more accessible than others. For example, the walking path at Normandy is the main level where the office is. Walking is entirely on that level. Valley Forge, the route has a few steps for every lap. However, there is an alternate route toward the vocational area available to walk. Parma High, there a few steps on each lap. However, residents can choose to walk the long hall back and forth if they wish.
    • Strollers are welcome.
    • For more information about this program, please call (440) 885-2328.
