Milton Keynes: Health Walks

About Us

*IMPORTANT NOTICE - CANCELLATION OF WALKS*

The Newport Pagnell morning and afternoon walkers will be joining forces on Wednesday 11th December.  This is due to a Christmas lunch they will all meet at 11.15 outside in Newport Pagnell High Street to join a slower paced walk. This means the 3pm walk will not take place on this date.

Red House Rovers walk this week (Dec 11th) won’t be meeting at the car-park at the end of Aldwycks Close, instead they will be meeting at St. Mary’s Church car-park in Dudley Hill, Shenley Church End.

 

*Windmill Hill Short Wednesday Walk at 10.15am is cancelled until further notice. Other short walks are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Friday.  Please see the weekly walks timetable which can be downloaded below.  

*Water Eaton, Friday walk at 1pm is cancelled until further notice.

 

Walking for Health in Milton Keynes is co-ordinated by Milton Keynes Council Sports Development Team and delivered by a network of volunteers who offer a range of walking groups, to suit walkers of all fitness levels.

We lead walks across the whole city, to provide the opportunity for you to see the wide range of parks and open spaces available in MK.

The walks are all led by qualified walk leaders, offering safe, secure and fun suitable routes for all.

All walks are between 30, 60 and 90 minutes in length (1.5 - 4miles) and  most include a social gathering at the end. Occasional longer walks are offered.

Walking for Health enables you to make new friends, improve your health and stay active, and have fun for free!  It is a good way to get to know the local area too. Walkers should be suitably dressed and wear flat comfortable shoes to walk in!  (Please note that walks do not take place on Bank Holiday Mondays, Good Friday or Christmas Bank Holidays)
