Holmebrook Valley Park

About

Come and join us to experience the benefits of walking with Nordic poles.

You will learn the difference between walking with and without poles, how to get more from your walks and why living the Scandinavian lifestyle is a great way to improve your health and wellbeing.

We’ll meet outside the Café at Holmebrook Valley Park, free parking and toilet facilities are available. We’ll be taking a walk around the lake with our Nordic poles to enjoy the wildlife. This way you can experience the benefits of Nordic Walking first hand.

Please join us after our walk for a Nordic Natter in the Café.
