Liverpool Brisk Walkers
Liverpool Brisk Walkers - The 'B' Side
With the exception of the walk on Thursday 28th June 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.

Saturday 2nd June: Sefton Park/Princes Park/Greenbank Circular. 5.5 miles.

Three parks in one afternoon make for an invigorating afternoon and some varied scenery. There is very little road walking on this route.

Saturday 9th June: Sefton Park/St Michaels/Otterspool Circular. 3.5 miles.

On this occasion we start the walk by heading for Aigburth Road via the park perimeter path and Livingstone Drive South.

Saturday 16th June: 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.

Saturday 23rd June: 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.

Thursday 28th June: 6.30pm start: Joyce's Walk: Sefton Park/The Obelisk/Cricket Club/ Greenbank Circular. 3.5 miles.

Note: This is not a brisk walk; Jackie will not be cracking the whip :-) From the start point we begin a clockwise circuit of Sefton Park, keep going right round past the obelisk, and past the multi storey flats. Stay on the park perimeter road, until you see the pavilion of the Cricket Club on the left, and take the path at the far right of the cricket ground. Continue ahead on Greenbank Drive, then a very short walk along Smithdown Road, turn right at the garage which brings you to Greenbank Park. Take the upper path to the right of the lake and exit on to Greenbank Lane. At the bottom of Greenbank Lane, turn left, and complete the circuit of Sefton Park.

Saturday 30th June: 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.
