    Winter Weather Walking Tips

    Whether you walk, bike, drive, or use transit, navigating winter weather conditions requires some preparation and caution. The PCA assembled some tips in infographic form to share with you. These are not conclusive, so as always, use your best judgement before travel. This week we feature Winter Walking:


    For more details on these tips and additional information, please follow the link or click on the image above.

    Dress for the temperatures: Avoid cotton fabrics, but use insulating layers. Accessories like gloves, hats, ear muffs, and neck gaiters are important. Skin exposure to low temperatures is dangerous.

    Footwear: Waterproof and insulated boots can be more comfortable, but if it's icy or snowy consider traction devices.

    Take it Slow: Allow for extra time to navigate the conditions. Be extra careful on stairs and slopes.

    Parkside is proud to be a walkable neighborhood. We appreciate the efforts of area businesses and residents in clearing sidewalks of snow and ice, and maintaining curbcuts .
