Active Auburn is a health and wellness campaign presented by Auburn Parks and Recreation and launched in August 2017.
During the 2017 - 2018 season, Active Auburn led the way in the creation of new health and wellness-oriented events and activities in the Auburn area. From glow-in-the-dark yoga to a downtown 5k, scavenger hunts in the parks and a lifestyle fair, the campaign made great strides in making Auburn healthier!
In its 2018 - 2019 season, Active Auburn will feature 10 events and 2 blog series that are fitness or recreation-themed and held in various City parks and recreation facilities or in other areas of Auburn, such as downtown, and posted on the campaign website (activeauburn.org).
