Columbus Junction Healthiest State Event

Written by Theresa Rose on September 28, 2016

COLUMBUS JUNCTION, IA – The City of Columbus Junction will hold a bridge tour event on October 5 as part of the Healthiest State Initiative’s annual walk. The tour will begin at the Civic Center, 232 Second St. at 11:00 am. Participants will be taken on a tour of bridges at three of the City’s recreation areas—Monkey Run Park, The Swinging Bridge and Chautauqua Park. All three parks have been improved in recent years and the Parks and Recreation Commission is pleased to showcase these areas while participating in the statewide event.


The Healthiest State Initiative has the goal to have an organized walk in all 99 Iowa counties. The ultimate goal is to encourage Iowans to get out and walk 30 minutes every day – an achievement that will help make Iowa the healthiest state in the nation. The Columbus Junction walk is the only event scheduled in Louisa County.
