Parkinson’s Walks

Parkinson’s Walks are proving popular.  We have expanded from the original idea of walking in parks, and we now include some interesting walks in the Edinburgh area.

At least two committee members or volunteers are at the meeting points. There will be options for medium paced or slower paced walks, so that everyone can walk at a pace that suits.

The next dates/places are:

  • Monday, 19 December 10.30am. Circular walk from outside Morningside Library, 178 Morningside Rd, EH10 4PU.  Close to public toilets and cafes.  5, 11,16, 23, 36 and 101 buses pass nearby.
  • Monday, 30 January 10.30am.  Circular walk from the foot of the pedestrian path on Lower Granton Rd up to St Columba’s Hospice. Buses 16, 19, 47 and 200 pass nearby.

The walks are relatively informal. We know that Parkinson’s can put paid to the best of plans, when an ‘off day’ happens. We wanted to have an activity where people are very welcome to just turn up on the day. No need to register in advance, and worry if on the day they don’t feel able to come along. The walks are open to People with Parkinson’s and their supporters.

We look forward to enjoying good company, some exercise and fresh air. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.

We will typically end the walk close to somewhere that people can go for a tea or coffee close to the end of the walk (which are often circular).
