Dementia-friendly walks at Victoria Park


Dementia-friendly walks are taking place in Ilkeston’s Victoria Park on the first Thursday of the month (through to October) to enable those living with dementia, and their carers, to enjoy exercise outdoors.

The morning walks, which are also wheelchair-friendly, have been organised by Erewash Borough Council’s sport and health development team.

They offer accessible strolls, led by qualified walk leaders.

The distance and pace of the walks can be tailored to those taking part and will last for between 20 minutes to one hour.

The remaining dates are: 8th August, 5th September and 3rd October.

All walks start at 10.30am and refreshments will be available afterwards in the park’s pavilion building.
