What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 3km walk for a gentle stroll around the park taking in the duck pond, River Cherwell and views across nearby fields which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 6km walk will be two loops of the short route around this green oasis. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.

All routes will start and finish by Gingko Gates, 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.
