So just how far did you walk? New markers in parks measure out the miles.

The City of Arlington and Texas Power are partnering together to provide you another way to get outside and get active. New mile markers have hit the pavement in city parks to indicate how far you have walked.
Thanks to support from the City’s retail electric partner, Texas Power, trails in the city have a concrete sticker that displays your distance traveled. Markers indicate to park users how far they have walked by the quarter mile on linear parks and how long the loop is within smaller parks.
“We are excited to partner with the city to encourage residents of Arlington to get outside and stay healthy, stated David Chase, vice president of Texas Power. “The trail stickers represent not only our continued strong support of the city but also our commitment to healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
The stickers are not just about exercise. Each marker has an educational component with a park fact and an electricity fact.
