Any parents are welcome to join us for the opportunity to meet new friends whilst getting out for a walk around our wonderful town!
Children are welcome, with or without a pram, but please read the route and see if the length of each walk is suitable for your little one to manage on foot.
Alternate weeks the walk will be kept around the Marine Drive to try and keep central for those who don’t drive or can’t access walks further away, the in between weeks will be walks in the surrounding area of Scarborough, somewhere different every week to discover new areas and keep it fresh for the children! All walks will be pushchair friendly 😊
