Healthy Lifestyles
Marshfield Area Coalition is a grassroots organization that began in 2001 to address healthy eating and active living in and around the Marshfield area. One of the coalition priorities is to address the need for more people to be more active by marking walking paths on Marshfield city sidewalks. The Healthy Lifestyle's red apple icon is painted on sidewalks with black arrows directing you where to turn. You can find these paths throughout the city and one of these paths starts right at Marshfield Clinic's front lobby door and passes through downtown and next to Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry Offices.

If you are looking to be active while in Marshfield explore one of our local Healthy Lifestyles walking paths with your family and friends. As of November 2005, there are four of the nine measured walking paths completed throughout the city of Marshfield. The paths completed are: L & J, Grant, Middle School and Mill Creek. The rest of the paths are projected to be marked by the end of 2006.

The distance for each path ranges from less than a mile to 3 1/2 miles. To view or print a detailed map of the paths click here.
