What are "Active Park Walks"?
Designed in partnership with Active Movement, these special park walks have been created to link with nearby schools and settings. They offer everyone an opportunity to walk and explore parklands, but can be also used by nearby schools and settings to be part of lesson learning.
Each of the 4 Slough parks has a short walk marked out by a set of wooden posts with a QR code carrying information about the walk. Simply scan with your mobile phone and you will learn more about the location or information on activity and health.
Each walk also has a map at the start detailing the route and some amazing facts about the benefit of completing just one lap!
Remember to follow social distancing guidelines when you are doing your walk, and don't gather in groups of more than 6 people.
The Poetry Journey – celebrating National Poetry day 2020
Slough Borough Council’s Libraries and Culture Service, in partnership with Public Health Slough, has created a poetry journey to inspire you as you enjoy your Active Park Walk.
At each of the six posts you’ll unlock a beautiful poem to listen to or read. Complete your walk to reveal all six poems for your chance to enter a prize draw to win a bundle of books.
We hope these works encourage you to read more poetry, or even write your own.
There’s lots more to explore with Slough Libraries and Culture, including a full programme of online activities for all ages, plus ereading and other digital resources to enjoy at home. You can also access books via our click and collect service – so why not order a selection of poetry books?
