22nd December 2017 : 1.30 - 2.30 pm
A weekly, Friday afternoon Buggy Walk open to everyone. The distance and pace is set to suit those who take part. The duration of the Buggy Walk will normally be around 30 minutes.
An easy paced walk within the country park that provides an escape to the countryside. Links to a canal towpath are also used to form varied, looped routes. Well surfaced and fully accessible paths are used, with few slopes.
Just turn up and take part (no booking required). The walk takes place all year round.
We encourage you to opt in to the 12-week Nature4Health programme and research study that helps you to a healthier, more active lifestyle and gathers self-assessed data to evidence the benefits of regular physical activity in natural green spaces for physical and mental wellbeing.
Wear comfortable, layered clothing and footwear suitable for walking in the countryside (walking boots are not always essential as the paths are well surfaced). Bring a waterproof jacket and weather cover for the buggy according to the weather forecast. You might want to bring a change of shoes. Bringing a bottle of water is suggested.
Public toilets are not available nearby but arrangements can be made with the public house or hospital nearby. Picnic tables and seats are provided in the park.
We meet up at the Countess of Chester Country Park car park, off Countess Court / Valley Drive Chester CH1 4ED.
Fully accessible routes are available from the car park that are tarmac surfaced and mainly level with few slopes. Seating is provided at intervals. There is a regular bus service (No 15) that stops outside the country park. The nearest railway station is at Bache, approximately 800m from the country park.
Car parking is available at the meeting / starting point and is free of charge.
