-Snowy Square Stroll is a program with fun signage along the pathways suggesting ways to get the littlest visitors up and moving — and their older friends, too. Newly updated for winter.
-Anyone looking for a little cardio exercise can take a walking loop around the Square — three loops equal one mile.
