The 2023 walk will be held in Centennial Park on Sunday 26th November.
We hope this provides an opportunity where memories and experiences can be shared. We have mapped out a beautiful route to walk through the park, and we will come together in the picnic area after the walk for lunch and some time together.
This page provides details on the walk, and an RSVP registration page. Please register as this will help us with our planning. Please see at the end of this page for the RSVP form, or email your plans to Jenny and Edmund firstname.lastname@example.org.
DESCRIPTION OF EVENTS FOR THE DAY:
Assemble at One More Shot Pond from 10am. We will start the walk at 11am. We will take a 5km walk through the beautiful surrounds of Centennial park, followed by a picnic and get-together. Alternatively you can stay at One More Shot Pond. We will have some people there who will be able to keep an eye on items left at One Shot Pond during the walk. We have booked the picnic ground so that we have adequate space.
You can do the walk at your own pace. Bring your own lunch.
The walking route is mainly flat and on paths and well-marked roads, with a section that takes us over grassland. It is about 5km long.
WET WEATHER PLAN:
Bring an umbrella, wet weather gear. If it is soggy and wet we will do an alternative circuit walk around Grand Drive (7km) on the walking path.
Please follow current recommendations on Covid safe practice.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Parking in Centennial Park is free. You could have a look around Musgrave Avenue and the Grand Drive. Waverley and Randwick Councils also provide free, on-street parking around the perimeter of Queens Park. Or you could try outside the grounds in Darley Road, and hunt around for other parks.
