Walking for Wellbeing – South and North Marine Park Walk

Have a chat with some friendly folk on this bimble around our beautiful parks.

We’ll take a quiet path out of town to reach the South Marine Park. After meandering through the trees, we’ll cross over to the north side, where we’ll walk up to the Lawe Top to take in the fantastic views across the harbour. We’ll return to The Word via the peaceful riverside walk.
