Bristol: Knowle West Healthy Walking Group

Our Walks

The Knowle West Health Park hosts four walking groups for people of varying levels of ability, mobility or fitness. The benefits of joining a walking group include the following:

Meet other people from around south Bristol

Explore parks and green places with others, in a safe way

Fun exercise with others to help keep you motivated

Reduced risk of illness including heart disease, brittle bones, high blood pressure, depression and anxiety

The Walking Groups meet weekly, at the health park,  Red Catch Park Cafe on a Thursday afternoon,  and at various places around south Bristol.  For walks further a field a minibus may be laid on for a small charge. All you need is a water-proof coat and good flat shoes, to be able to join. Volunteer walk leaders are fully trained to lead the walks, and to assist in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of participants.

Generally the different walking groups meet at the following times but changes may be made to accommodate trips out or special events:

ONE HEART GROUP Monday mornings - 11.00am  - Lenght of walk up to 25mins - Healthy Living Centre Cafe.

TWO HEARTS GROUP Thursday mornings - 9.30am - Length of walk up to 60mins -  Various Locations

THREE HEARTS GROUP Tuesday mornings -  9.30am - Length of walk up to 90mins -  Various Locations

More hearts means the walks are more strenuous, so three hearts walk the furthest and one heart is more gentle for beginners or for those with limited mobility.
