An exciting new project for children aged 3 – 5 and their families to encourage active travel and connection with local organisations, venues and green spaces in the Bridgeton, Camlachie, Dalmarnock and Parkhead areas.
The Walking Bears project aims to engage one third (around 250 children/families) of the pre-5 population (mainly 3 – 5 years) in the Bridgeton, Camlachie, Dalmarnock and Parkhead areas in a physical activity project to help encourage active travel, community connection and engagement in local services, organisations and green spaces.
In summary, the project aims to:
- Encourage walking for local journeys
- Increase exploration and use of local greenspace
- Raise awareness of and confidence engaging with locations of interest
- Improve engagement with local organisations/services
The project has now ended in the Bridgeton, Camlachie, Dalmarnock and Parkhead areas after a successful pilot project in 2019! Work continues in local nurseries and organisations.
