This walk can be as long, or as short, as you would like. Some loops are as short as 0.6 miles, others are longer at 2 miles. See our Strava map below for some ideas on the routes we take.
On street parking is available at various points throughout the walk. We use Holmacres Drive to enjoy the 0.6 mile circular route (CA1 3AA) and Gillford Crescent (CA1 3BS) if enjoying the longer 2 mile route.
Why we love this walk:
Petteril Valley Park is a lovely green space south of the city of Carlisle. We love the wide, tarmac paths and the two play areas at either end of this walk. It is a great, safe and easy walk with your children as it is pedestrianised throughout and is well away from a road. It is an ideal place for bikes and scooters.
