Monday Evening Walks. Alternate Mondays 7:00pm.
Meet at Noah's Ark pub on Hartshill Road. Walks take various routes but a common one is to enter the park via the Vicarage Road Car Park and walk along the "safe route to school" which overlooks St Thomas Acquinas School and beyond to Hanley Cemetary and Shelton Church. The walk continues along the length of the park to the Convent Pools, an area that has been subject to much recentimprovement due to a project funded by the Big Lottery Fund's Community Spaces initiative administered by Groundwork UK.
