Walking For Pleasure Inc

Acronym: 
WFP

Walking For Pleasure is a community organization which aims to increase levels of fitness in a social atmosphere through recreational walking. The organization began in 1987 with Government assistance, but these days we are completely independent and have over 400 members.

Canberra's abundance of open spaces, parks, lakes and forests creates a superb environment for walking. Volunteer walk leaders pool their knowledge for good walking routes so that we are able to present a program of around 60 different walks in each three-month period. Consequently, participants get to fully explore and enjoy our natural environment and places of interest.

Joining a regular ongoing walk program is a simple and enjoyable way of life. Walking is one of the safest aerobic activities and it can usually be continued into very senior years.

Social contact is clearly another benefit of walking in a group, particularly for those living alone, working from home or adjusting to retirement. Just getting out into the natural environment does much to lift our spirits, but increased fitness also raises our self-esteem and general sense of well-being.
