Mayor Karl Dean hosted the first “Walk with the Mayor” group walk at the Harpeth River Greenway Sat., May 31, 2014, to kick off the summer walking series Walk 100 Miles Nashville. More than a hundred walkers and numerous four-legged friends lined up at 9 a.m. at the Harpeth Valley Golf Center on Old Harding Pike and walked over to the Morton Mill Trailhead for the opening ceremonies followed by the walk.

Mayor Dean was joined by Metro Parks & Recreation and Greenways for Nashville to celebrate the opening of a new stretch of the Harpeth River Greenway, which now connects to Warner Parks. The walk event began with Mayor Dean and dignitaries lined up behind the green ribbon for a brief ribbon cutting ceremony for the new greenway section.

Walkers were invited to join Mayor Dean for a 5-mile walk to the Exchange Club Trailhead and back or to enjoy a second option to turnaround at the halfway point for a shorter walk of 2.5 miles. The full walk took about an hour and 15 minutes to complete. Water was provided along the way, and at the end of the walk at the Morton Mill Trailhead, there were two tents and a table full of information about the Nashville Greenways, Blue Cross Blue Shield and a conservation move for Middle Tennessee waterways in addition to a table where walkers could get one last glass of water.

Dean is recognized for his efforts to make Nashville a more health-conscious community with more exercise through walking at Nashville's greenways and local parks.
