not start a walking regimen at Kantor Park? With the completion of the walkway
around the grass field; if you do a "figure 8" around the park, you will

"I'm on a Wait List for a program. What does that
Some of our programs have a maximum # of participants that can be
registered for any number of reasons such as physical space limitations, established
ratios between our instructors and participants, equipment/material available, etc.
If you have added your name to a wait list (always at no charge), you
will be contacted only if space becomes available. If you are still interested in the
program; your registration on the wait list will move over to the intended program, and
you will be asked to go in and apply payment to secure your spot in the program. If you
are no longer interested, we will just remove your name from the wait list and continue
on down the list.
