Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy.
One of the reasons health experts give walking such rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or the final mile from the bus stop may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and making the time to get there) can be.
Because it’s easy to fit into everyday life, people who walk tend to keep it up. And as you’ll see below, regular exercise is exactly what you need to improve your health.
For local journeys Carlisle Park is well located for those wishing to undertake journeys on foot. Along Station Road and Bridge Street, just to the north of the site in Swinton, there are a range of shops, hairdressers, pubs and cafes. It is also only a short walk to the local school, town hall, library and train station.
