Walkers from all over Stevenage congregated on Saturday to step out and savour the fresh air and exercise.
The Health Walk is a 90-minute brisk walk aimed at working people who cannot make midweek events.
Organiser Denise Fagen said: “I would like to encourage as many people to reap the benefits.
“Walking improves your health, your happiness and, if you join in on one of my walks, it will give you the chance to explore the outdoors, get to know your local area and meet new people.
“You don’t need any special equipment and best of all it counts towards your recommended amount of physical activity.”
Events organiser Denise lives in Chells Manor and started organising the event after finding a lack of health walks for working people like herself.
“She said: “I intend to get as many people of working age that are not able to get to the mid-week walks – that are mainly for retired people – to join me in a 90 minute brisk walk around the park.”
