What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 2km walk for a gentle stroll around the gardens and oval cricket green, which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs.  The longer 7km walk will continue out beyond the park, to discover more of Leicester. Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change. 

Both routes start at the bandstand on the Abbey Park Road side of the park, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass.  Amongst the excitement, take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.

How to get there

Memory Walk will start and finish at the band stand in Abbey Park, which is located off Abbey Park Road.

There is no parking at the park so public transport is advisable - buses operate along Abbey Park Road close to the entrance to the park. Find bus details on the council website. There is also additional city centre parking nearby.

To keep Leicester environmentally friendly please choose the most sustainable method of transport and car share where possible.  

Registration will close Thursday 27th September 2018 and you will not be able to register at the event. So sign up now and get your team members to do so too!
