Parklea Health Walks

Parklea Branching Out currently run health walks once a week, supervised by one of our qualified walkleaders.

These incorporate a 45 minute flat and free social health-walk followed by a light refreshment, being supported by a trained walk leader and open to all levels of ability and fitness.

Our health walks have proven to be succesful with them allowing participants to increase their physical fitness, improve their mental health & wellbeing as well as supporting weight loss goals. In addition they provide a great opportunity for participants to socialise.

Our health walks normally take place every Wednesday. We ask 1st time walkers to arrive 15 minutes early so they can be registered.

Unfortunately our health walks are currently postponed due to lockdown restrictions. For updates on our health walks and other activities please check our Facebook page

World Walking Activity

As part of Parklea’s health walks, individuals also are able to take part in the World Walking Activity, that is an ongoing activity at Parklea Branching Out. World Walking was originally set up by a group of people with heart disease who decided to keep active by going for a walk.

All steps that the group or associates walk is added to their virtual tour. At this time the groupโ€™s accumulated steps have been calculated and they have managed to walk the same distance of what it would be from Port Glasgow to Istanbul. This amounts to 5,208,780 steps so far. A short video taken on one of Parkleaโ€™s walks can be accessed via our You Tube Channel.

If you are interested in the World Walking activity further information can be found at www.worldwalking.org.uk
