Aims & Objectives

Walks Logo 300
To help in ensuring that The Walks is sustained, for present and future generations, as a precious green space which is a pleasure to pass through or spend time in at leisure, recreation or simply as part of day-to-day life.

The Group will fulfil this aim by seeking to:

  • promote the enjoyment, security, health and well-being of park users and visitors
  • work together as a group regardless of personal difference and recognising the value of such differences
  • preserve the historical promenades and ancient monuments
  • protect the trees and wildlife
  • involve local people in improving the park
  • advance and promote both environmental improvement and practical conservation, to educate, encourage and support park users and visitors in environmental practice by working with statutory and non statutory agencies
  • promote sport, community recreation and play facilities
  • minimise the threat of vandalism
  • create a peaceful and safe environment for park users and pedestrians at all times of day and night
  • raise funds and receive contributions where appropriate to finance the work
  • publicise and promote the value of the park as a community and wider public asset
  • provide a forum for the discussion of issues affecting The Walks and act as a channel through which views of park users and the wider public can be communicated to local government
