Walking is a great way to be active. There are so many places to walk across West Sussex, from the flat promenades of the coastal towns to the more challenging ups and downs of the South Downs National Park. It’s a low-cost exercise which everyone can enjoy… just find yourself some appropriate footwear.

The Sussex Wildlife Trust is responsible for many volunteer programmes which operate in the county.  Their website has details of these schemes, which include regular activities in local parks.
