Walk description:

The city of Perth enjoys a beautiful position on the banks of the River Tay, just where it starts to widen on the last stages of its journey to the sea. The town is known for its stunning floral displays and has won many trophies in the `Britain in Bloom` competition.

Some of the most colourful flowerbeds can be found in the riverside areas, from where there are many delightful rambles suitable for wheelchair users.

Bellwood Park (near to the Rodney Fitness Centre, off the Dundee Road) has good paths, numerous sculptures and the lovely, sheltered Rodney Gardens. For some of the best riverside views in Perth take the path under the Queen's Bridge into Norie Miller Walk.

The North and South Inches are two separate areas of attractive parkland close to the city centre. Both have flat paths suitable for wheelchair users, with plenty of interest en route.

The North Inch has fantastic views of the mighty River Tay as well as many seats and good picnic spots close to the water.

Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park is located less than 5 minutes drive from the town centre. There are many waymarked walking trails throughout the park including The Squirrel Walk (¾ mile/1km). This pleasant circular stroll starts from the Jubilee car park and is designed for those with special needs such as wheelchair users and families with pushchairs. The woodland is rich in bird and animal life, including red squirrels.
