Description Who will you walk for? This 2014 the Manchester Memory Walk returns to the lovely Heaton Park, just 4 miles from Manchester city centre. Choose your route and get walking! It’s a great way to help support people living with dementia in the local area, raise money to help us find a cure and celebrate the people you love.

With loads of family entertainment before and after the walk, the kids can get their face painted, there will be live music, a DJ and refreshments on site as well as a raffle. Both Memory Walks are wheelchair and pushchair friendly, looping around the lake or the perimeter of the park. Pets are welcome, too.

How to get there: Car: Heaton Park is close to the M60 and easily accessible from Manchester city centre. The three main entrances are St Margaret's Rd, Smithy Lodge and Sheepfoot Lane entrances. For parking information see below.
