Worcester City Park Warden Healthy Walks

About Us

 

Worcester City Park walks are free and a great opportunity to meet new people whilst improving your health!

We offer 3 different walks to suit a range of abilities and interests.

The Warndon Walkers offer a shorter walk of 20-30 min on the 2nd Thursday in each month, with the usual walks being around 45 min - 1 hour. The Warndon Walkers can also accomodate wheelchairs and pushchair users.

The Fort Royal Healthy Walk is for around 1 hour and often takes in lovely scenery around the Cathedral and the cities waterways.

The Gheluvelt Riverside walk is more challenging, at 1 and a half hours we walk approx. 4 miles. We recommend trying a shorter walk first of all if you are just getting back into walking or usually walk at a leisurely pace.

We welcome new walkers – just turn up!

Please see the length and duration of each walk to see which is most suitable for you and your level of fitness.

We always need more volunteer help. If you would like to become a walk leader or help with admin please contact us, training is provided.
