A NEW booklet, detailing all accessible walks for those with pushchairs, wheelchairs or mobility scooters has been launched.
Walks for All provides information on routes with gentle gradients, free of stiles and steps with attractions and refreshments nearby, each exploring beautiful meadows, wildlife habitats and waterways throughout West Cheshire.
Among the ten routes are walks through Marbury Country Park, Shakerley Mere and Chester’s Millennium Greenway.
Councillor Richard Short, executive member for culture and recreation, said: “Cheshire West has some of the most beautiful countryside the UK has to offer and those with mobility problems should not be put off making the most of our environment with their families.
“These walks cater for all and explore a vast range of varying environments, from meadows and waterways to wildlife habitats.
“The brochure is free so get your copy now and make the most of the summer weather.”
The authority is also asking Cheshire West residents to have their say on outdoor recreation in the borough.
Do you go out walking, cycling or horse riding? Would you use off-road routes for family walks and cycles if there were fewer stiles and obstacles?
