It provides a direct link with the area's industrial past, but also a wealth of leisure opportunities for today's residents. Among the best must be the Canal Broadwalk, managed by The Parks Trust, which allows you to walk, jog or cycle from historic Linford Manor Park through to Woughton on the Green, on leisure routes which give access to The Grand Union Canal and its colourful traffic of narrowboats.
Among the things to look out for en route are the Great Linford Brick Kilns, the boat basin at Pennylands, the avenue of Lombardy Poplar trees and a boardwalk through the reeds between Giffard Park and Willen Park.
There are plenty of opportunities for fishing along the Canal Broadwalk. Contact Milton Keynes Angling Association for details
There are no facilities along the Broadwalk.
There are local shops in most of the adjoining areas, and pub restaurants directly on the route at Giffard Park and Peartree Bridge.
With its connections to the city's systems of redways and leisure routes the Broadwalk is suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs and cyclists.
The park is open at all times.
