Free family event rounds off Walk Leicester festival

Published on Thursday, May 24, 2018

FAMILIES can take part in a fun, free event at Abbey Park this half-term as part of the city’s Walk Leicester festival.

Funky Feet and Whacky Wheels will give children the chance to decorate their shoes, bikes and scooters at a ‘bling station’ before setting off with activity sheets to explore the park. There will then be a parade around the park with prizes for the best decorating efforts.

The event takes place from 11am until 1pm on Wednesday 30 May at the Oval, Abbey Park.

It has been organised by sustainable travel charities Living Streets and Sustrans with support from Leicester City Council, as the finale to the month-long Walk Leicester festival.

Walk Leicester has featured guided walks, nature rambles, street art tours and trips to use outdoor gyms at the city’s parks. The aim of the festival is to show people how easy it can be to build walking into your everyday life, becoming more active and benefitting from the better health that this can bring.
