Walk Aberdeen's health walks are part of Sport Aberdeen's Active Ageing programme aimed at helping you stay active, whatever your age. They are designed as a low intensity walk for those who want to get a bit more active or are living with a long-term health condition.
Walk Aberdeen delivers a range of local health walks across the city every week, from Bridge of Don to Culter and Torry. Each walk has its own character but all are welcoming of new walkers. The free walks usually last around one hour and always finish with a blether and a cup of tea.
With the help of a large network of fantastic volunteers, Walk Aberdeen runs a range of low-level, friendly walks from buggy walks to Macmillan Friendly walks. Some of our walks have been designed with those living with dementia and their families in mind and many of our walk leaders and walkers are dementia aware.
Some of our walk leaders have done Disability Inclusion training and we are taking part in Grampian Disability Sport's Get Out Get Active (GOGA) project. Some of our walks incorporate Strength & Balance exercises and we are currently running a sheltered housing walking project.
Whether you would like to meet new people in your area or get more active, we are always looking for new people to join in our enthusiastic, very social, walks.
