FIT & FUN IN THE PARK…
Featuring the 2015 Heart of Heath 5K & Family Run
The Heart of Heath 5k was established in 1994 by a group of dedicated volunteers to help raise funds for the construction of Towne Center Park, located behind Heath City Hall.
Today, Towne Center Park is the “heart” of all City events, and this gathering has been expanded to include fitness FUN for the whole family including a new one-mile run, outdoor classes like yoga, Pilates and taekwondo, life-size checkers, chess and other games, and refreshing goodies available like healthy treats from Smoothie King.

HOLIDAY IN THE PARK
This is an annual favorite featuring the musical talents of our local students, the Christmas tree lighting, a winter village with some of Dallas’ most popular food trucks, a cozy outdoor dining area warmed by holiday lights, a miniature train ride, and fun activity booths for the kids.
There’s always plenty of complimentary hot cocoa, while Mrs. Claus and her elves serve complimentary Christmas cookies, home baked and donated by the National Charity League and Rockwall Women’s League.
Of course, the star of the evening is Santa. After his grand arrival, he’s eager to visit and take photos with the children in his sleigh, nestled in a picture perfect scene. Bring your camera!
