Walk Description:

Make a regular commitment to meet up with like-minded people for some gentle exercise and social interaction. This walk and talk is a great way to remind yourself how good it feels to be outside in the fresh air. Don't forget to leave time for a coffee afterwards for more opportunity to let go of your stresses and head home with a clear head and a healthier body.

Using nature's gym provided by the landscape and geography of Knighton Park, we will add some gently exercises to help build balance, strength, flexibility and mobility at intervals along our walk.

Meet: Knighton Park Car Park (off Palmerston Way/A563 RingRoad). Free Parking.

Pace: Steady, to suit the group. This walk is open to anyone who wishes to join, but if you would like use Nordic Walking poles, we ask that you have a valid Freedom Passport.

Terrain: This is a mixed terrain venue with paths of various different composition as well as undefined walkways through woodland. At this time of year, the grass can be wet and the paths can get muddy. Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions and sturdy boots or shoes. Wellies are not recommended.

Elevation: Negligible inclines.

Toilets are available in the park, but there are no refreshments. The Car Boot Cafe will be in attendance after the walk serving a selection of warm drinks and cake for a small contribution to cover the cost! 

When joining us we ask you to read and agree to these safety measures:

We aim to be respectful towards members of the public and reassure them of our safe practices. Please bring a small backpack or bum bag with water and a snack if required.
