Welcome to the website of The Friends of Walkers Heath Park - a group of local individuals who come together to make Walkers Heath Park a better resource for the community. 2014 was a great year for us because we FINALLY got a Children's Play Area after 3 years of hard work. We are still doing Active Parks activities over the winter with a Spring launch planned for mid-March. There's loads of useful stuff on this website, so spend some time checking out all the lovely links, pics and videos - especially the brand new This Girl Can campaign, the Tai Chi at Home session and how getting active in your local park and volunteering can really Reward Your World.
This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations including Be Active/Active Parks :) It's a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. This Girl Can is here to inspire women to
wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement
is a barrier that can be overcome. Oh yes it can!
Unable to get out to yout Tai Chi class in the park due to poor, inclement winter weather? Well, the Active Park's team have thought of everything! You can now watch a session online and do your class in the warm and dry in the comfort of your home. Click the YouTube link
