Swindon Health Walks
Swindon Health Walks are free weekly group walks that encourage enjoyment of the borough's parks and open spaces. They usually last 40 - 60 minutes and come back to a community venue for refreshments and socialising at the end. Our friendly groups always welcome new walkers.
The local scheme also includes Gentle Walking Groups. These groups offer short walks of up to 20 minutes and are suitable e.g. for beginners, for people recovering from illness, for those with mobility difficulties and wheelchair users. The Gentle Walking Groups (and the Liden walking group) also offer a seated exercise session as an alternative (or in addition) to a walk.
Walkers in Swindon also have the chance to try one-off special walks during monthly "away days" and other special events organised by the walking groups.
