Meet: In the public car park off The Common, LE5 6EA, close to the entrance to the park.
There are public toilets within the park (subject to Covid-19 restrictions), but no cafe or refreshments available within the park. However, there are shops and facilities nearby on Evington Green.
Pace: Steady, to suit the group. Walking poles will be provided for you to use. They are disinfected and quarantined between activities.
Terrain: This is a mixed terrain venue with paths of various different composition as well as undefined walkways across meadows. The towpath and some paths through Glen Parva Local Nature Reserve/Aylestone Holt Spinney could get muddy. The route may occasionally cross a stile.
Clothing: Please come prepared for the weather on the day. We recommend you wear layers to keep you warm, and avoid wearing jeans as these are cold if they get wet, and can chafe. A waterproof outer layer is preferred in wet weather. Trainers or boots with a good grip are the best footwear. The grass may be wet and the paths muddy. Pumps, wellies and slip-on shoes are not suitable.
Elevation: This park is generally flat, but has some inclines which may be used to demonstrate techniques for walking up and down hill.
