Community Walking Track

Photo of the LMH walking trackThe Lenoir Memorial Community Walking Track is located on the campus of the hospital and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Landscaped to create an attractive environment to exercise in, the walking track has plenty of public parking, a water fountain, fenced-in playground, and picnic tables. Restrooms are located inside the hospital and may be accessed through the hospital's front entrance between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.

/images/uploads/walking_track_playground_web.jpgFor our guests' safety, a security camera monitors the track grounds at all times and there is an emergency phone to report any injury or accident that might occur at the track. The track is entirely lighted after dark. Parents are asked to be responsible for their children while they are on the premises.

Walkers are asked to wear appropriate exercise clothes when exercising and to wear rubber soled shoes. For the safety of our guests, skateboards, bikes, roller blades, and pets are not allowed. Parent-attended strollers are welcome.

The track is designed to be visually appealing and functional. Walking around the outer perimeter of the track six times is equal to one mile, walking around the largest circle of the track 8 1/2 times equals a mile. Faster walkers should remain on the outside of the track and slower walkers on the inside of the track to allow everyone to maintain a walking pace that is comfortable for them.

We hope that you enjoy the Lenoir Memorial Community Walking Track!
