Walking Group

When & Where

The group aims to meet each month. We meet in the morning at the start of the walk, usually between 9.30 – 10.00am, with the aim of walking for about two hours ( Dogs and Families welcome). We try to find walks that are circular and on footpaths or tracks with a minimum of road walking. We aim to walk in the local area within a maximum of one hour’s drive for most members.

Organisation

We take turns to arrange each walk. Each walk is tried out first to make sure the length and difficulty are suitable for our members. The organisers are also responsible for finding a venue for lunch to follow the walk, which can be in a local restaurant, in a member’s house or a picnic in the summer months.
The details of each walk are e-mailed out in advance to members who can then let the organisers know that they will be attending.

Next Walking will be with the Gardening group in downtown Toulouse with the theme ‘the exceptional Trees’ in a relaxed tempo on Thursday 31st October. To be hosted by Johanna & Hilary.
We will meet at 10.30 at Tram T1 stop Palace de Justice. So from whatever direction you are coming from, meet here.
In the neighbourhood to the Museum de Toulouse ( Natural History Museum) are three historical parks with several exceptional trees. This walk will explore these gardens and surrounds. So it’s a nice gentle stroll suitable for all.

In the neigbourgh to Muséum de Toulouse (Natural History Museum) are three historical parks with several exceptional trees (Jardin Royal, Grand Rond and Jardin des Plantes). The purpose is to explore these gardens with few details of some of the trees and then make a walk in the surrounings for them who feels for it.
