Virtual Walking Festival

Media Banner Image - Virtual Walking Festival 2.jpg

Due to the situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we had to cancel this year's MK Walking Festival which was taking place in May. Our team had worked hard preparing some fantastic walking routes for this year's programme and we certainly did not want that to go to waste!

For those looking to get active and explore more of Milton Keynes' green space, we have decided to release 8 walking routes. The walks have a difficulty rating from 1 to 3, rated 1 for the easiest and 3 for the harder routes.

If you chose to follow one of these guided walks, please remember to follow the Government guidelines and keep 2 metres apart from people who are not a member of your household.

We hope many of you get outdoors and are able to enjoy walking in Milton Keynes' green space - don't forget to tag us in your photos on social media @theparkstrust!
