If health walks aren’t for you, you can walk at a time and place that suits you. There are plenty of great routes in the borough in parks, nature reserves and along the canal towpaths. In order to encourage people to walk more the following resources are available;
Free pedometer loans in libraries – You can borrow a pedometer to keep track of how much walking your doing. Just go to your nearest Dudley Council library and take out a pedometer, just as you would a book!
Online route planner – Visit Walkit.com to plot a walking route in your local area. This route planner will give you information on distance, how long the walk will take and how many calories you will burn.
Signage in parks – There are signage boards in most parks showing routes within the parks, giving information on time and distance
