Step It Up!

Step it Up! is a free 8-week walking program designed to help participants get active and visit new parks in Ottawa and Allegan counties. Step it Up! will begin on April 11, however, registration is currently open, so those interested can sign up today.

Within the Step it Up! program, Ottawa County Parks & Recreation will offer multiple guided walks of varying paces each week. To encourage participants to discover new recreational activities, the program also offers opportunities to try kayaking, orienteering, and more. These activities and any necessary equipment are free-of-charge to registered participants. Participants will be able to set activity goals and track their activity through the Step it Up! online platform.

Each week, participants who track their activity are eligible for incentive prizes. Step it Up! also makes for a great COVID friendly activity option, allowing you to be outside and providing space to socially distance. After the year we have had, nature can work wonders inside and out!
