Hi, is this an urban walk? i.e. on hard surfaces. Just wondering about appropriate footwear.

Also, do you know if it's possible to park in the Park? (I haven't been there before). Thanks Smile

Hi Esselle

90% of the walk is on tarmac paths, the other 10% on grass, so I would say trainers would be suitable.

In answer to your other question, there is a car park on Guildford Avenue, and there's also street parking nearby.

Be nice to see you again.

What a lovely way to spend your day off. Nice walk around historical S2 with your friends, followed by reasonably priced home made food and a nice cuppa tea. Thanks for the company guys!
