Union County Celebrates Walk to School Day

Union County, NJ – Union County Freeholder Alexander Mirabella greeted students at the Brunner School in Scotch Plains on Wednesday to help celebrate Walk to School Day.

“Walk to School Day is all about building healthy habits that last a lifetime, and it’s wonderful to see how the students enjoy sharing this positive message with their teachers, peers and parents,” said Freeholder Alexander Mirabella.

Union County supports walking and hiking through its system of 36 parks, including miles of rustic trails and paved paths. The County also offers guided nature hikes and bird-watching events as regular features in its public recreation programming.

“The Freeholder Board also supports national trail programs that encourage exploring our urban neighborhoods on foot or by bicycle,  including the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail and the East Coast Greenway,” said Mirabella.
