The Walking Group meets every Thursday morning at the Jells Park Tearooms at 9.30AM, weather permitting. In the summer months, the meeting time is 8.30AM. Usually between 15 and 25 men and lady members enjoy the regular exercise together. Each walking session lasts for between 1 and 1.5 hours and at an accommodating pace for all. Members may divide into two groups opting for a slower more leisurely walk around the Park or the faster and longer walk in order to increase the pulse rate. Walking is usually followed by a hot cuppa and chat at the Tearooms.

During the summer months walking commences earlier to avoid the hotter temperatures which can be experienced. On fire ban days walking is abandoned for safety reasons. On regular occasions throughout the year the Group enjoy a BYO breakfast or tea together utilising the BBQ's and picnic facilities provided in the park.

The Group follows the various bush and sealed walking trails provided throughout the Park including those which extend through into Nortons Park and Shepherds Bush.

Emergency Markers have been placed around the Parks to assist Emergency Services to locate walkers requiring assistance. Click for more information. - (Marked up plan courtesy of Rita Hall.)

The Park contains a wide variety of interesting bird life including pelicans, sulphur crested cockatoos, black cockatoos, rosellas, lorikeets, blue wrens, butcher birds, bell birds and ibis to name just a few.
