Countess of Chester Country Park – Wellbeing walks

12 July 2021

A new social walking group is being set up at the Countess of Chester Country Park to bring people together to enjoy the park and nature whilst also improving their physical and mental wellbeing. 

The group is open to everyone and will be led by trained walk leaders who will take the group on a steady walk around the park’s pathways and adjoining canal tow path. 

The wellbeing walk will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes with breaks to enjoy the surroundings. 

Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council said: “This is the second group to be set up under a new walking initiative coordinated by the Council’s Total Environment team in partnership with The Rambler’s Association. 

“The group is organised jointly by volunteers from the Friends of Countess of Chester Country Park and staff from our Total Environment Team.”  
The group will meet at the Friendly Chair, Countess of Chester Country Park every Friday at 1pm starting from 30 July.  

To book a place or find our more information contact: mary.lavery@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk. As this is an outdoor activity, participants are advised to wear suitable footwear and clothing. 

Further wellbeing walks can be found at www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/walkfinder. If you are interested in volunteering or setting up a new walk within the borough, contact: healthranger@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk.  

The Countess of Chester Country Park is owned by The Land Trust and managed on their behalf by The Conservation Volunteers.
