London Borough of Croydon

There are over 80 guided walks and events on offer throughout the year to help you discover and enjoy Croydon's parks and open spaces.

Who are these walks for?

These walks are aimed at people who would like to discover the beauty of the natural open spaces in Croydon. The walks are suitable for most people as the pace is generally easy, although paths can be uneven, muddy at times and hilly in places.

We do offer family events specifically for children but please remember that children must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Dogs on a lead are welcome unless otherwise stated.

What to bring?

Remember to wear stout footwear with good grip. As weather conditions can change during a walk, please bring waterproof clothing or sun protection just in case. Walks usually last for one to two hours; long walks are indicated. You may want to bring a drink and a snack.

Who leads the walks?

All the walks are lead by experienced leaders. They are either countryside wardens, Greenspaces officers, volunteers from Friends of parks groups or staff from the Downlands Countryside Management Project.
