Walking Group


This group will meet at 9:30 a.m. at various Trailheads.  We will do a brisk 60 to 90 minute walk on relatively flat ground.  Weekly walks would be led by those involved.    If you are interested, please contact Pat Bancroft at: patbancroft@telus.net or  Margaret Bates at margaretbates@shaw.ca   Everyone welcome.


A reminder to email me five days or more before your walk, so that I can send out the information to everyone. What this means is you would provide me with the information on the walk you are scheduled to lead (60 to 90 minutes) and also let me know where you would like everyone to meet-up and where we will stop for coffee after the walk.   I will then send out the weekly reminder–usually on the Monday evening.   We ask that if you are leading a walk that you try not to have excessive stairs on the walk (e.g., approx. 20 at a time seems to work; more is difficult for those with breathing and knee problems).


August 18th — Gorge Waterway Park

This Friday’s walk will be led by Bobbi and Don Johannessen — 250-658-8824  or johannessen@shaw.ca

The walk on will be the Gorge Waterway Park.  We will meet at the parking lot of the Esquimalt Gorge Park.  Entrance is off of Tillicum Road.  The walk will take no more than 1 1/2 hours.  It is flat, with a couple of easy ramps, lots of interesting information boards, beautiful plantings and scenery.  Also, there are two public washrooms along the route.  We will walk to Craigflower School and back. 

Coffee will be at the Gorge Pointe Pub, 1075 Tillicum Road after our walk along the Gorge.
