places to walk in Bracknell Forest

Get moving in the sunshine as the council launches the free Summer Walks for Wellbeing programme, in partnership with sustainable travel experts, Sustrans.

Walking is great for the mind and body and one of the easiest ways to become healthier. Anyone can join and enjoy the benefits of being outdoors with 10 guided walks, led by qualified walk leaders, being offered across Bracknell Forest’s beautiful countryside.

Walks will start from Monday 3 July and will take place in various locations across the borough, including:

  • Binfield - Popes Meadow and Cabbage Hill
  • Birch Hill - South Hill Park
  • Bracknell town centre - Elms Park and Lily Hill Park
  • Crowthorne - Buckler’s Forest
  • Harmans Water - Savernake Park
  • Jennet’s Park - Peacock Meadow
  • Warfield - Westmorland Park
  • Wildridings - Mill Pond

Walk leaders will offer coaching and mentoring to participants regarding their individual health and mobility needs, as well as travel planning advice and route-finding assistance.

Walks are open to all residents and have been given a difficulty rating of either easy or moderate. The full programme of walks can be found on the public health portal.

Cllr Megan Wright, executive member of adult services, health and housing, said:

“Our wellbeing walks have been extremely popular in the past and we are so pleased to be launching the summer programme.

“Walking is not only free, but it is one of the best ways to improve your activity levels. We are proud to say that anyone can take part, as walks are given a difficulty rating and participants will be supported by our friendly walk leaders.

“Enjoy the outdoors and warmer weather, whilst learning more about active travel!”

You don't need to sign up for the walks, just show up on the day in suitable clothing and footwear.
