Summertime Family Wild Walks

Wild Walks – ‘adventures for children to take their adults on’ – are short walks of about 2km (taking about 2 hours), perfect for 3-7 year olds, and with lots of adventure and discovery for their adults and older siblings.

As a community, every two weeks, we go on adventures exploring our local green spaces in Hackney and nearby! The aim is to create an environment where children feel they have permission to play outdoors, connect with nature and have fun!

If you would like to join any of our Wild Walks please email beth@outdoorpeople.org.uk, and Beth - our Community Coordinator - will book you and your family in. It's free - all we ask is you pay it forward by taking a friend for a walk in the future...

We will bring some snacks for the Wild Walks, but we recommend you bring some water and snacks too! Also don't forget to bring weather-appropriate and waterproof clothing. We can provide families with waterproof shoes and clothing, if you do not own any!

Note: All Wild Walks are subject to latest government guidelines. The Wild Walks will be cancelled if the guidelines change. Since numbers are limited, you and your family book a place on the Wild Walk.

If you would like to join any of our Wild Walks email beth@outdoorpeople.org.uk, and Beth - our Community Coordinator - will book you and your family in. It's free - all we ask is you pay it forward by taking a friend for a walk in the future...

Family Wild Walks is part of the Outdoor Families programme. A year-round programme, connecting families from across London with nature, gradually increasing their range of experiences – from weekend walks exploring local green spaces, through to a weekend camp in the countryside.

Would you like to feel more confident going outdoors with your family? Would you like to meet other families in your community and discover new green spaces? 

If you are struggling to get outdoors regularly with your children, we would love to hear from you!
