27 April 2021

During the past year access to green space has been more important than ever. Being able to enjoy the great outdoors has been beneficial for our mental and physical health. Going out for a walk has helped us to stay active and connected.

This May is National Walking month and to celebrate, we are encouraging you, to get out into the great outdoors. Throughout the month you’ll be able to attend a variety of walking events, take part in our Walking Festival as well as follow new self-led walking routes which will be released shortly. 

This year's Walking Festival will be taking place across the weekend of 7th to 9th May. Over this three-day period, there is an exciting programme walks across the city, all of which vary in difficulty and duration meaning there’s always something for everyone. A great family walk is the introduction to Geocaching, or if you’re looking to find out more about the culture in Milton Keynes take part in the Public Art in Campbell Park walk.

The Walking Festival also includes walks to allow you to explore new areas such as Wolverton Floodplain and Waterhall Park. The Parks Trust would like to thank their Walking Festival partners and volunteers, without their support they wouldn’t be able put on such a variety of walks.

Explore the event line-up and book your places via the links below. Spaces are limited so please book ahead to avoid disappointment.
