The Active Trafford Greenspace project aims to help people to explore and enjoy Trafford’s parks and countryside on foot. Throughout 2015, we’re going to be delivering a series of public walking activities and themed events right across Trafford. The idea behind the Greenspace project is to connect people living and working in North Trafford, Broomwood, and Carrington Moss with their local greenspaces and the Mersey Valley.

The current network of paths and trails will be improved and signs installed to promote both new and familiar routes around Trafford. We’re also producing maps to help people explore new areas of Trafford and supporting community groups to organise their own walks.

The initiative is being led by Red Rose Forest on behalf of Trafford Sport and Physical Activity Partnership and Trafford Countryside Management Partnership.

The Visitor Centre at Sale Water Park is the main base for walking and training events, so why not come along, take a walk with us and explore Trafford’s greenspaces? Grab your boots and see you soon!
