Description Taking place in the outstanding parkland of Bute Park, in the shadow of Cardiff Castle, the Cardiff Memory Walk weaves through a haven for wildlife.
The shorter accessible walk passes Bute Park arboretum with many rare and ornamental trees, and weaves alongside River Taff to the stunning Cardiff Castle.
The 10km walk gives walkers the opportunity to spot even more of the natural features of the park, plus a stroll under the iconic Millennium stadium and past Sophia Gardens home of Glamorgan Cricket Club. It follows a route alongside River Taff in to Pontcanna Fields before heading back towards Cardiff Castle.
Join us for a fun-filled family day out at the Cardiff Memory Walk. There will be entertainment throughout the day including music, kids entertainment and fundraisers! Refreshments will be available after the walk.
There will also be a Memory Wall area, where people will be able to reflect and share their memories on the day.
Help raise even more money for Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in the Bupa Memory Mile, comprising the final stretch of your walk. For every walker who takes part in the Bupa Memory Mile, Bupa Care Homes will donate £2.50 to Alzheimer's Society.
