Walk & Talk: Wonderful Willen - A Sociologist's View

13:30 - 15:30
Adults and accompanied children 12+
Booking required

Enjoy a guided walk around Willen Lake and the Tree Cathedral through a sociological lens. During this walk we will explore how the landmarks around Willen Lake reflect the unique culture and social make up of Milton Keynes, how this has changed over time and how The Parks Trust cares for its cultural treasures.

This walk and talk on 2nd February is suitable for anyone who wants to find out a little more about the parks. We will be following the main paths, but may venture into grassland to get up close to some features, so please wear suitable footwear.

This is a mainly flat route but with steps up to the Peace Pagoda. It will be at a brisk pace to enable us to see a range of features in the given time. Suitable for adults and accompanied children over 12.

This event is hosted by our Outdoor Learning Team who run sessions across Milton Keynes' parks to help people learn more about their natural environment.

  • Tree Cathedral

    Contrary to what many believe, Milton Keynes does have its own cathedral. But like the city itself, this cathedral is unique - made from bark and leaves rather than bricks and mortar.

  • Willen Lake North

    Willen Lake North is home to one of Milton Keynes’ best-known landmarks, the first Peace Pagoda to be built in the western world - and to a rich and varied bird population.
