Bristol’s annual walking festival, Bristol Walk Fest, kicked off this month and to celebrate Bristol Walking Alliance will be running several guided walks around the city to explore the ‘walkability’ of Bristol.
Walkability is a measure of how friendly an area is to walking and the extent to which the built environment is friendly to the presence of people living, shopping, visiting, enjoying or spending time in an area.
One of these ‘walkability’ events will be led by the Forum’s Co-chair, Gordon Richardson. You can join him for a short walk around Westbury-on-Trym on Tues 7 May to explore good and bad walking environments in the area. It will cover what it feels like to walk around the village and how it could be made better, including for Disabled people and people with visual impairments.
