Family Wild Walks RSS
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 are excited to restart our Wild Walks and to be able to gather again this autumn and winter!
Join us every other Sunday to explore our local green spaces around North Hackney, make new friends, spend time in nature, play, reconnect and support each other.
In 2019 we did at least one Family Wild Walk a month, helped by the generous sponsorship of the Arc’teryx Piccadilly Store team. With up to 40 people on some of the walks, more than 50 families joining us over the year and our online community has grown to over 60 members.
In 2020, we’re planning to merge our Wild Walks and Family Camping experiences, to create a year-round Outdoor Families programme, making it easy for people to get outdoors regularly.
