Those of us in snow country don't have access to parks yet, that's for sure, but Spark people also live in FL, TX, NM, etc., where the weather is nice. (I vaguely remember warmish weather with no snow.. LOL.)
One of my favorite places to walk in good weather -- no baseball, basketball, or tossing a frisbee there -- is the local cemetery. It's pretty. It's quiet (duhh). It's historical (I enjoy looking and reading old grave markers). It's safe because there is little if any traffic. The paths and roadway are fairly level so no tripping over stuff found on a usual hiking trail (much appreciated on a day when my knees are hurtin'). My town's cemetery even has a few hills which ramp up my walking.
