 Under a program begun by Manet Health Center,  granite 'mileage markers' are  spaced 1/4-mile apart for a span of two miles, embedded in the sidewalk, along the Quincy Shore Drive  seawall, as an incentive for walkers and runners alike to challenge themselves on their personal health and fitness program.The markers run from opposite Caddy Park to the corner of
 Quincy Shore Drive and West Squantum St.

Granite mileage markers measure 12 X 20 and have been hand etched (by Monti Granite) with the donor's name and logo. 4 of the 12 markers are placed at the "Pavillion" at West Elm Ave, the mid-way point of the
"Road to Fitness"


April 23, 2007: Congressman Delahunt and a few Friends announce the 'mileage marker' program for
Wollaston Beach!
