Fair Shares organise Gentle Walks in Stratford Park in Stroud every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. We usually meet at the Museum in the Park in Startford Park at 10.30am for a coffee and chat, with the walks starting about 11am. If the weather is unsuitable for an outside walk, we walk round the museum and visit the exhibition gallery, so we meet whatever the weather. Sometimes we can't meet during half terms because of the Museum's capacity for visitors and we don't meet during August. 

The walks are suitable for those who need to use a wheelchair or mobility aids or those that struggle with walking any long distance. If needed we arrange two walks, one for those who can manage to walk around the park and lake and another for those who can manage only a short distance, so we try to accommodate anyone who would benefit from a gentle walk. The walks are also suitable for those living with various stages of dementia. Disabled parking is available either outside or near the museum, just drive to the top of the leisure centre car park and press the button next to the barrier then tell the receptionist you are there for the walks.
