No matter what your fitness level, you’ll be able to join in with our Health Walk group. Supported by our staff and volunteers, the group is a great opportunity to explore the beautiful High Hazels Park whilst getting to know others in the community. There are also opportunities to find out about the plants in the park and to try mindfulness activities, to help your mental wellbeing.

All followed by refreshments back at Darnall Primary Care Centre, if you choose to come back with us!

In March 2024, local GP Dr Farrell joined our Health Walk group and here’s what he had to say about his experience with us:

I joined the Health Walk on 18th Mar, meeting Saada and Teresa, and was really impressed by the relaxed, yet motivating manner in which all participants were engaged in the walk. The opportunity for everyone to meet each other, talk openly about anything that came to mind, and take rests whenever they fancied meant we all got good exercise in without any stress. The often passionate discussions (e.g. nationalising essential services) while having tea and biscuits back at DPCC afterwards was a welcome reminder of how engaged people are with their communities. Without this group, it is likely many of the participants would not find the motivation and confidence to get out into the park and walk the High Hazels hills!
