Free telescope nights…Join a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador for a night of telescope viewing the last Thursday of each month at a different public park in Oak Park. Each session also will feature a discussion of current and upcoming NASA missions and discoveries. Feel free to bring your own telescope. Upcoming telescope nights are July 26 at Euclid Square Park, 705 W., Fillmore St., and August 30 in Taylor Park, 400 W. Division St., skies and weather permitting.
Walk with a doc…Oak Parkers are invited to spend an hour walking with a doctor from 9 to 10 a.m. every third Saturday in Lindberg Park, 1151 N. Marion St. In addition to the valuable exercise, walkers can get answers to their health-related questions. Walking is a great, low-impact way to exercise. Research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise. More information is posted at www.pdop.org.
Input needed…Residents are invited to be a part of the Park District of Oak Park’s long-term strategic planning by attending a community meeting set for 7 to 8 p.m., Tues., Sept. 11 at Cheney Mansion, 220 N. Euclid Ave. Visit www.pdop.org for more information.
