Walk Description:

The Glen Parva Nature Reserve and Great Central Way provide a fantastic opportunity to explore the local area and the wildlife found within it. This Explorer WALX is for pole walkers and non-pole walkers alike and will provide a friendly, sociable opportunity to find out more about the world around us, while getting fitter at the same time!

Meet: Glen Parva War Memorial Hall, Dorothy Avenue, LE2 9JD Limited free parking. If parking on the surrouding residential streets, please be mindful and courteous of those who live in the area.

Pace: Steady, to suit the group. If you would like to use walking poles, we suggest you sign up for our Power of Poles training if you have not already been granted your Freedom Passport.

Terrain: This is a mixed terrain venue with paths of various different composition as well as undefined walkways across meadows. Some paths could get muddy. We recommend you wear clothing and footwear appropriate to the weather conditions at the time.

Elevation: Negligible inclines.

Refreshments: Unfortunately the Park Cafe at Glen Parva Memorial Hall is not open on a Sunday. However, we may be able to get a quick drink at the King's Lock Tearooms en route.
