The Parks Trust and Milton Keynes Council (MKC) have launched ‘50 Walks for MK50’, giving residents an ideal opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors around the city.

MK residents are invited to make the most of the better weather and take part in some of the 50 led walks on offer, created by The Parks Trust and MKC to celebrate the city’s 50th birthday.

Spring is also a great time to explore the flora and fauna. These walks give the people of MK the chance to explore the city’s beautiful and varied landscapes, and to also welcome back the blooming flowers, waking wildlife and the different species of birds returning from their winter migration.

The next walks in the programme are the MK Health Walks with the Lovat Fields and Whaddon groups, March 13 and 22 respectively, exploring the beautiful areas of Willen and the peaceful Ouse Valley Park.

Julie Dawes, events and recreational co-ordinator for The Parks Trust, said: “We are incredibly fortunate to have such a varied landscape in Milton Keynes, with stunning parks, woodlands and lakes right on our doorstep.”
