The Millennium Walk

The Millennium Walk around St Saviour's Reservoir was opened in 2001. The 3km long nature trail was created by Guernsey Water, in consultation with environmental groups and other users, to enable the public to enjoy the environment and wildlife that surround the reservoir. In 2021, an outdoor learning area was developed in conjunction with a wheel chair accessible path. Explore the walk ahead of your visit by clicking on different areas of the infographic below.

The outdoor learning area

In 2021 Guernsey Water developed a space in Les Annevilles pine forest for outdoor learning. This area is designed to connect the community with nature. Educational and community groups are able to book this space by creating a log in and adding your event to the calendar. You can also book educational talks on birds, entomology and botany by contacting La Société Guernesiaise.
