Walk in the Park

Honorary Chair of the Jersey National Park, Jim Hopley, MBE, said: “This year, Walk in the Park has a revitalising focus, encouraging visitors to get active while discovering the Park’s diverse landscapes. Our programme of walks aims to inspire Islanders and tourists alike to get active in the outdoors, appreciate the Park’s natural beauty and learn something new about what it has to offer. We are working with a range of fantastic partners on our programme, which includes environmentally focused walks, talks on sustainable farming, and ample opportunities to see the Park’s incredible flora and fauna.”

Mr. Hopley continued: “The Jersey National Park has over fifty miles of paths that are available to the public to use. These paths take visitors to some of the Island’s most beautiful, remote and yet environmentally sensitive wild areas. And many of these paths cross private land thanks to the goodwill of landowners. It is important to remind the public that whilst out enjoying the Park to stay on marked paths, and keep distance from wildlife.”

Jersey Sport’s CEO, Catriona McAllister, said: “Walk in the Park is the perfect opportunity to combine physical activity and the great outdoors. This campaign encourages people of all ages and abilities to engage in healthy exercise while exploring the stunning landscapes of the Jersey National Park.”

She added: “We’re proud to support this initiative, as it aligns with our mission to inspire and enable everyone on the Island to lead active, healthy lives while appreciating the natural beauty it has to offer.”
