AARP Trail Trekker Hikers help improve and give back to the parks we love!


AARP in the Twin Cities and Three Rivers Park District are teaming up to host a river clean-up, free picnic, and community conversation on how to better connect active older adults to our neighborhood parks and the great outdoors. 


Public parks are important places for building a sense of community and belonging. They are spaces that belong to everyone, regardless of age.
The simple act of walking or riding a bike reduces the chance of dementia, depression, diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, and high blood pressure by at least 40%.1. 
Growing evidence shows that spending time in nature boosts the health of people 65+. 
We also know that the more connected and engaged people are with their community, the more likely they are to age successfully. 


Join fellow community members and the Trail Trekker Volunteers that advocated for and serve as the inspiration behind our AARP Mississippi River clean-up to help keep the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park safe and litter-free. Enjoy a free picnic down by the river flats.  Share your thoughts on the amenities and green spaces that make up the over 27,000 acres of parks and trails that comprise the Three Rivers Park District and help identify where and how to improve the livability of our local parks.
