About Walk for Parkinson's - Pollok Country Park, Glasgow

Walk for Parkinson's at Pollok Country Park invites participants to walk a gentle 1 mile or more challenging 5 mile walk around Glasgow's largest park. It's extensive woodland and gardens provide a quiet sanctuary for both visitors and wildlife, and you can also enjoy the elegant Pollok House, walled garden and stable courtyard features. All funds raised at the event will help us improve the lives of people living with Parkinson's in Scotland. It is a family event and suitable for all ages and abilities.
