The Parks Trust announced it's Walking Festival for the second weekend of the month between May 7-9.

Across the weekend, 21 different walks throughout the city, have been planned of varying difficulties and durations.

The charity encourages keen walkers interested in public art to explore Campbell Park.

May is National Walking month

Parks Trust officials promise less well-known beauty spots will be featured during the festival including: Wolverton, Floodplain and Waterhall Park.

Discovery Strolls will continue each month in Milton Keynes. During these walks Park Trust Rangers will take you on a short stroll around a different park, talking about its features along the way with plenty of opportunities to stop, rest and to look at and discuss points of interest.

With outdoor exploration once again allowed in the UK, The Parks Trust also run Walk and Talk events. During these activities you’ll will be taken on a guided walk around a different park, all whilst learning about a specific topic.

This could be anything from Bats to Wildflowers. If you’re looking for a more regular group, then the Women’s Walking Network might be for you. Meeting every first Thursday of the month these walks take up to two hours and cover around four to five miles at a moderate-brisk pace. They are a great way to socialise and meet new people.

If you enjoy getting together with other people and their dogs, then take a look at The Parks Trust Woof Walks. Led by one of their Rangers, these monthly Woof Walks are normally an hour circular tour and a great way to socialise your dog as well as getting to know a new dog walking route.

Finally, this month The Parks Trust are releasing newly created self- led walks. With over 40 parks to explore there’s plenty of new walks to discover. Head over to their website to find out more about their parks and follow their recommended walking routes.
