Our walks are easy, fun and free. What's more, with more than 50 walks taking place each week, there's bound to be one near you.

Come along and enjoy the fresh air, meet new people and take in the sights of Glasgow's parks and gardens. ​​​

Lasting around an hour, our walks are easy, sociable and most of all good fun. Our walk leaders are on hand to encourage you to go at a pace you’re comfortable with and make sure you get the most out of your walk. All abilities are welcome, please bring a buddy if you need one to one support.

We also train and support organisations to establish their own walks for members. This allows organisations the freedom to offer walks at a time and day that they know will work for the groups involved. Please call 0141 287 0963 or email walking@glasgowlife.org.uk for more information.

Walking During Periods of Social Distancing

We know this is an anxious time for many, and we encourage everyone to keep active when they can and if they feel well enough to do so. The secret to maintaining some level of physical activity is to use every opportunity to be active and doing some of this outdoors is fantastic for boosting your mental wellbeing as well as getting a break from being stuck in the house.

Please follow the latest advice if heading out for a walk from our partners at Paths For All

Strength & Balance Activities

If you're not currently able to walk as much or as far as you would like, our friends at Paths for All have designed a set of resources to help you maintain strong muscles and bones which, in turn, help you to stay active and independent in your everyday life. You can do these exercises at home using their useful Strength & Balance workout:
