The low loop of Alexandra Park is a beautiful combination of immaculate planting, mature trees, water features, wide open spaces, fabulous play equipment, a cafe and a toilet block. Wheelchair/pushchair friendly.
You probably don’t need a map to walk this, but it is great to know that a full loop of this part of the park is just over a mile. If you want to build a gentle, regular walking habit, this is a great place to start.
Smooth surfaced paths all the way, this is ideal for wheelchairs, scooters and pushchairs. And with so many gorgeous features along the way, you’ll love every minute.
Parking: on street parking around the park, free further from town. Public transport: bus stops on St Helen’s Road.
