On Sunday 31st July a health walk was held to celebrate the installation of three new way marked one mile walk routes in the park. The three circular routes start from Walking and Friendship Trail signs located near to the Edge Lane, Firswood and Ryebank Road park entrances. The initiative, partly funded by a grant from Trafford Council’s Inclusive Neighbourhood Fund is aimed at making the park more accessible to all sections of society and encouraging people to walk at least a mile a day in green surroundings.
