Power of Parks: Jana Cooper

Welcome to Power of Parks, a podcast produced by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department, where we share inspiring stories from people who have benefited from nature, parks and recreation.

Episode 12 features Jana Cooper, an avid nature lover who manages the Instagram Page, @walkyourpathfl. On the page, she shares photos from her adventures in and around trails, parks, outdoor gardens, museums, and natural areas in mostly South Florida. In the podcast, she shares her passion for nature and explains why everyone should get out to a trail for their mental and physical wellness.

#pbcParks and F.O.R.C.E Remind You to Wear Your Helmet!

The Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department and Florida Off-Road Cycling Enthusiasts teamed up to create this short video about the importance of wearing your bicycle helmet while riding through bike trails at our parks, as well as outside of our trails.

Watch this video to hear from members of F.O.R.C.E, find out how to properly fit a helmet, and see what happens to two pumpkins dropped from four stories – one shielded with a helmet, and one without!
