Walk & Talk Plymouth Central Park – Move More

The Central Park Walk & Talk takes place every 4th Wednesday of the month. Meet outside the main entrance of the Life Centre at 10.30am Walkers can participate in either a short 30-minute walk or a longer 60-minute circuit of the park. This includes some longer inclines to challenge the legs. After the walk, walkers are welcome to pop in for a cuppa and a chat at the Life Centre café. This walk is wheelchair & buggy friendly.

We recommend you dress appropriately, to meet the weather forecast for that particular day. It’s also a good idea to bring a bottle of water. For information on which Buses to get to the meeting point contact: Traveline: 0871 200 22 33

This is a GRADE 1 Walk

A Grade 1 walk is suitable for people who have not walked much before, are looking to be more active, or are returning from injury or illness. They are up to 30 minutes on flat ground or gentle slopes with mainly firm surfaces and no steps or stiles.

Walk & Talk Plymouth
Walk and Talk Plymouth scheme is organised by Livewell Southwest Wellbeing Team, Plymouth City Council, and volunteers, to provide free short health walks in and around Plymouth.

The scheme has regular walks in and around the parks, woodlands and nature reserves of the city.  Currently, they have at least one short easier walk of up to 30 minutes per month, with some longer 30-60 or up to 90 minute walks to build your activity levels further.  Walks in the nature reserves and woodland can be muddy during the wetter months, so sturdy footwear is recommended.

Short easier walks are suitable for all abilities and are on good paths with only some small hills. Their other walks can be a little more challenging, with some uneven terrain and longer inclines. The walks generally take place at 10:30am on a weekday morning, but they do have some walks on a Saturday. Please see their current programme for more details of when and where the walks will take place.
