Walk With Ease

The Department of Parks and Recreation was recently awarded a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association to implement Walk with Ease (WWE). This program features a free six-week exercise program developed by the Arthritis Foundation, aiming to reduce the pain of arthritis and improve overall health for our Prince George’s County residents.
