Walkability Audit

On the 22/11/16 we went out on our walkability audit. The purpose of the audit is to assess how pedestrian friendly  a particular route is. The route we chose was from St Louis Infant school to Mc Nally’s car park via the roundabout car park returning via the Clones road. We chose this route as a possible park /stride location.  We found that over all the route was reasonably friendly to young children provided they were accompanied by a responsible adult. We had ample supervision on the day from Mrs Greenan, Miss  Rocks, Miss Burns, and Miss Lynch. There was lots to notice on such a short route many of which were positive. The winter shrubs were beautiful as well as the wonderful view into the convent park. However the footpath along the roundabout car park is in need of repair. Unfortunately there was some litter to be seen.
