Walking is one of Manningham's most popular recreation activities because:

  • It's a great way to be active
  • It's free
  • It's a more social way of travelling
  • You can do it anywhere at any time
  • You don't need any equipment, other than a pair of shoes
  • It's a sustainable way of getting around
  • It doesn't matter your age, pace, whether you're on your own or in a group, heading somewhere or nowhere in particular
  • It's the best value form of exercise for the prevention (and cure) of many major health problems, including obesity, diabetes, cardio-vascular disease and more.
