Bixby Knolls invites all to take a stroll around the neighborhood

bixby-strollers-2.jpgBusiness owners, residents, friends and family are encouraged to join the new walking club, the Bixby Knolls Strollers, every Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. It’s been a great way for strollers to get fit, check out the businesses, explore the neighborhoods and meet neighbors, and the group keeps growing in size.
Strollers have been touring the area with walks up and down the boulevards, to Forest Lawn Cemetery, through Rancho Los Cerritos, to the Cliff May homes, through California Heights, and over to the Dominguez Gap. The routes are approximately 3.5 miles and change each week.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 21, 6:30 p.m. for the “Summer Solstice Stroll” hosted by the Friends of Rancho Los Cerritos. This event is free and open to everyone. All strollers will meet at Rancho Los Cerritos, 4600 Virginia Road, at 6:15 p.m. and depart at 6:30 p.m. for an evening stroll through the neighborhood. After the walk, the Rancho will be providing delicious summer treats in the garden like watermelon, ice cream, soft drinks and other snacks to celebrate the kick-off to summer in “the Knolls.” The Rancho will be open for self-guided tours of the gardens and facilities.
Friendly dogs are welcome too, and LaunderPet will provide bags to dog owners.
Bixby Strollers meets at It’s a Grind Coffeehouse, 4245 Atlantic Avenue, which is the starting and finishing point for the walk, which lasts about an hour. Since the walk starts at 7:30 a.m., participants are asked to arrive a little early to sign up as a stroller member.
