Snapshot: Melt the Trail


The Westfield Parks & Recreation Dept. hosted a Valentine’s Day themed run/walk on the paved trails at Grand Park on Feb. 14. Mother Nature didn’t make the inaugural Melt the Trail 5K easy on the participants as winds gusted 27 miles per hour and the wind chill made it feel like -6 degrees. This was the parks department’s first 5k run held at Grand Park, which has 10 miles of paved trails. Every runner received a medal and a post-race party inside the Field Sports Administration building. (Photos by Robert Herrington)
