Avoid the crowds and join our friendly staff on this exploratory guided walk of Willen Lake South in Milton Keynes on Wednesday 17th April at 11am. With the route designed to be accessible for walking and wheeling, everyone is welcome to attend. We will meet at the Willen Observation Wheel, which is located off the V10 Brickhill Street (see below for precise location), where there are accessible toilets (including Changing Places) and a cafe. We will then walk around lake and learn about wildlife and the activities that happen here.

The walk will last roughly 1 hour and covers approximately 2 kilometers. There are some benches along the route for rest stops, but you may wish to bring a walking seat. We will use surfaced paths which can be bumpy in localised areas, but we will be avoiding large slopes. There is some background road noise along the route. Please get in touch to tell us how we can support your accessibility requirements. A hearing loop is available on request.
