Walking for health

Wellbeing walks

 

Wellbeing Walks is a developing programme of short, friendly group walks that can help you become and stay active.

 

The walks are led by trained volunteers. The walks will be at a pace that is right for the whole group, and are a relaxed, social and friendly space for the members: whether you’re looking to add more movement into your routine, would like to meet new people or get some fresh air to enjoy nature.

Broxbourne Guided Walks

There are over 30 guided walks and events on offer throughout the year to help you discover and enjoy Broxbourne's parks and open spaces.

 

Who are these walks for?

These walks are aimed at people who would like to discover the beauty of the natural open spaces in Broxbourne and surrounding areas. The walks are suitable for most people as the pace is generally easy, although paths can be uneven, muddy at times and hilly in places.

We do offer family events specifically for children but please remember that children must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Dogs on a lead are welcome unless otherwise stated.

 

What to bring?

Remember to wear stout footwear with good grip. As weather conditions can change during a walk, please bring waterproof clothing or sun protection just in case. Walks usually last for one to two hours; long walks are indicated. You may want to bring a drink and a snack.
