Parks in Milton Keynes have become more accessible

    The Parks Trust in collaboration with AccessAble have officially launched new Detailed Access Guides for three of the most popular parks in Milton Keynes.

    Thanks to The Parks Trust and AccessAble, a world leader in the provision of accessibility information, Detailed Access Guides are now available for Furzton Lake, Stanton Low Park, and Great Linford Manor Park. The new guides are 100 per cent facts, figures, and photographs to help people plan their visit to the parks, covering everything from parking facilities and assistive listening, to walking distances and accessible toilets.

    Everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed and accurate information is so important. It’s why all the details within the guides have been checked in person, on site, by trained surveyors.

    David Livermore, Director of Business Development at AccessAble said, “We were thrilled to work in partnership with The Parks Trust to create Detailed Access Guides to parks across Milton Keynes. The AccessAble website will enhance the visitor experience, helping more disabled people to enjoy the local landscape confidently.”

    Hannah Bodley, Deputy Chief Executive at The Parks Trust – the charity caring for Milton Keynes’ parkland said, “We’re thrilled to launch our first collection of Detailed Access Guides in partnership with the expert team at AccessAble. These guides are part of our work striving to make the city’s landscapes more inclusive and ensuring that the whole community can enjoy our beautiful green spaces.”

    The Parks Trust deliver special accessible events throughout the year. Popular Accessible Guided Walks provide exploratory guided tours suitable for both walking and wheeling, with hearing loop and descriptive guidance available too. These events are roughly 45 minutes and cover about a mile in distance, with plenty of benches to take a rest as needed. This season, Accessible Guided Walks will take place at Waterhall Park in July, Broughton Brook in August, and Ashland Lakes in September.
