folp Featured, General, Health Walks

Just as a reminder, the Health Walks are on the last Sunday of the month. Walk dates:

29th May, 26th June, 31st July, 28th August, 25th September, 30th October, 27th November – December: no walk as Christmas Day.

Join Friends of Longford Park volunteers in a gentle stroll around the main paths in Longford Park Stretford. Enjoy the fresh air, company and beautiful surroundings of Trafford’s largest park.

Walking can make a difference. It can be fun, a chance to talk and can help keep you fit. Research has shown that walking in green surroundings can promote a drop in blood pressure and reduce feelings of stress. The walks are especially suitable for people who do not take regular exercise and who might feel unable to access their local green space.

Walks commence at 10.30 am at the main entrance gate on Edge Lane (at the Junction with Cromwell Rd). Walks last about 1 hour and are suitable for all abilities. Everyone can walk at their own pace. Wear suitable flat shoes. Refreshments will be provided at the end of the walk at Longford Bowling Club within the park.

Walks provided in partnership with Trafford Borough Council as part of the British Heart Foundation’s “Walking Your Way to Health” Initiative. For further details contact: www.friendsoflongfordpark.org.uk
