Health Walks at Cheshunt Park

A new health walking initiative has started at Cheshunt Park. Health walks are short, regular walks, focussing on the health benefits of outdoor walking.

 

The programme is co-ordinated by the Borough Council and supported by the Countryside Management Service with the objective of helping people to get outdoors and be more active.

 

The health walks have a regular timetable which follows routes of varying lengths in the park and surrounding areas. The routes are graded so walkers will have an idea of what to expect and can choose walks to suit their own needs.

 

The walks were launched in spring 2009 and we are now looking for additional volunteers to help lead them. Volunteers will receive free, certified training. For more information go to our Health Walks page.
