The canal centre at Mytchett is the perfect place for visitors of all ages. It is a good place to start for walks, cycling or boating. The carpark is free during opening hours. At other times the barrier allows entry with a code only.
Outside there is a children’s playground and next to that a café with inside and outside seating.
In the spring and summer there are regular trips on the 12 seater boat ‘Rosebud’ and a variety of unpowered craft to hire.
From here you can walk across the swing bridge and along the towpath to Frimley Lodge Park. Plenty of space here for games and a picnic.
In the other direction you can follow the towpath along the canal to see open water areas eg Mytchett lake and Great Bottom flash a fairly short distance away. Or walk on further if you have time.
