LIVERPOOL BRISK WALKERS: SEPTEMBER 2017
All brisk walks will start at 1.30pm.
The starting point for the month is the Gothic Fountain, Sefton Park Boating Lake (Aigburth Vale end).
Please note that the mileage stated for each walk is approximate.
Sat 2nd September: Sefton Park/Wavertree Playground Circular. 4.5 miles.
We head for Greenbank Park by going initially along the perimeter path of Sefton Park.
We start doing a clockwise circuit of Greenbank but exit on to a street which leads to Smithdown Road and Grant Avenue.
From there we make our way to Wavertree Playground.
Once we are inside the "Mystery" playground, we will keep to the path alongside the railway before turning right just before the new swimming pool.
As far as possible we stay on the paths nearest the perimeter and then exit onto Grant Avenue before heading back to our starting point.
Sat 9th September: Sefton Park/St Michaels Circular. 3.5 miles.
During the course of this walk we will go through Priory Wood and along the promenade path.
On this occasion we will start by making for Otterspool Wood after crossing Aigburth Road via the underpass.
Sat 16th September: Sefton Park/Toxteth Park Cemetery Circular. 6 miles.
The cemetery is more commonly known as “Smithdown Road Cemetery”.
We do a full circuit around the perimeter path.
Before going to the cemetery we make our way to Greenbank Park and do a full circuit of that.
The walk ends with us coming along the perimeter path of Sefton Park to reach the boating lake.
Sat 23rd September: Sefton Park/Princes Park Circular. 4 miles.
We take one of the paths near the lake and then go diagonally across exiting the park near to Ullet Road.
We cross this road and walk down Windermere Terrace prior to entering Princes Park.
We then go clockwise around Princes Park and do a full circuit before exiting and re-tracing our steps.
Sat 30th September: Sudley Park Circular. 5.5 miles.
Some walking on the pavement is unavoidable but our journey through Greenbank ensures this is cut to a minimum.
The path around Sudley is very pleasant.
