Details

Come along to a fun walk where you’ll learn how to use walking poles in a relaxed Nordic Walking session. Nordic Walking enhances ordinary walking, making something we learn to do as babies twice as effective. Not suitable for wheelchair users.

Dogs not allowed.

This park has been improved through the Greening for Growth programme with the support of Advantage West Midlands and the European Regional Development Fund. The Greening for Growth programme of environmental improvements was launched in 2003 and is the largest environmental regeneration programme in the West Midlands. Greening for Growth aims to create Well used and maintained landmark parks that offer more leisure opportunities and attract visitors to the area. A North Staffordshire network of safe, attractive off-road routes for pedestrians and cyclists. Canals, rivers and disused railways will link green spaces with homes, work places and leisure facilities, 28km of greenways will be created or upgraded. A landscape to be proud of where major transport routes and developments are set in interesting, high quality landscapes.
