Get walking

The Enjoy Waltham Forest programme aims to encourage residents to be more active in their daily lives and the way that they travel and walking is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to make a local journey. It's convenient, free and great for your physical and mental health.

As well as walking for travel we're also supporting residents to walk for pleasure, check out the links below to find out more ways you can enjoy walking around our borough.
