Mackay Gardens and Lakeside Preserve Presents:
A free organized retreat away from the stresses of daily living
Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 2:00pm
Join our guide, Steve Franklin, for a tranquil stroll along one of the trails in our Preserve. There, you will visit shaded coves where the group can pause to participate in stress reducing mental exercises and enjoy the calming effects of nature poems. The program allows participants an opportunity to consciously immerse themselves in the redemptive air, sights, and sounds that forests so generously provide. By the end of the walk you will likely feel as calm, relaxed, and refreshed as you would after enjoying a warm bubble bath. It’s worth a try.
Reservations required. Contact the Parks Department at: 863-291-5272 or [email protected]
