All are welcome to join this gentle sensory stroll through Southwark Park where we will learn more about the history, flora and fauna of Southwark Park. As we go we will learn more about how to support people living with dementia to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the outdoors. The walk is primarily aimed at people who have dementia and their carers, friends and family but everyone is welcome.

The walk is run in partnership with the Alzheimers Society, Walk Unlimited and Transport for London.

PRACTICALITIES:

There are limited opportunities for refreshment/toilet breaks.

Please consider the weather forecast and the type of walk you are planning to join and wear appropriate footwear and clothing.

We recommend that you bring a drink as there may not always be opportunities to purchase refreshments.

ADVICE NOTE:

This is a flat and easy route suitable for wheelchairs.
