Walks in The Park

The Walk in the Park initiative is going well and has proved popular.

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:

  • Mon 27June 10.30 (start point: Saughton Rose Garden café/takeaway kiosk in courtyard, EH11 3HP)
  • Mon 23 May  10.30 (start point: entrance to ASDA Leith Superstore, 2 Sandpiper Drive, EH6 6NX)
  • Mon 25 April  10.30 (start point: Lauriston Castle car park, 2 Cramond Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 6AD)

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 park.
