    Is there a better word for going "back and forth"

    "The two senior citizens are walking back and forth in the park as a part of their morning exercise"

    Is there a better word for going "back and forth"

    Thank you.

    Re: Is there a better word for going "back and forth"

    Unless it's significant- and you gave no indication it is- why mention the direction at all?

    Why not: "The two senior citizens are walking in the park as a part of their morning exercise" or, better:

    "The two senior citizens (take a walk/go for a walk) in the park as a part of their morning exercise"
