Group of walkers on a woodland trail

This easy walk takes 30 to 35 minutes and uses footpaths that lead through the green and leafy West Park and across the River Can. 

There are some inclines, but it is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, with plenty of places to rest and enjoy the views. 

Please note that, for each walk, a specific route has been agreed and risk assessed to provide the safest walking environment possible. This cannot be changed.
