Visitors to take in wildlife on new way-marked route
The new circular route around Stratton Park gives users an option to walk or run a 1.4km or 1km route around the park, with the route starting at Kempshott Village Hall.
Those using the new way-marked route can also take in an array of impressive wildlife such as trees, flowers and birds and learn about the history of the park.
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has opened the route with free access for people of all ages.
It was officially opened by Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane Cllr Seán Keating alongside health walk leaders on Thursday 6 December.
Cllr Keating said: “It’s great to see the new way-marked route now open at Stratton Park.
“It is a real great asset for the local community and I hope residents will make the most of it by going for a run or taking a stroll with family and friends.”
Other way-marked routes in the borough include Popley, Down Grange Sports Complex, Little Penwood and Crabtree Plantation.
