Garstang is the starting point for a diverse range of walking routes that traverse through beautiful pasture and woodland at the edge of the River Wyre and the picturesque towpath of the Lancaster Canal.

The Wyre Way is a long distance recreational route, which links the sea at Morecambe Bay with the Forest of Bowland, passing through Garstang. The local riverside walk, a circular trail suitable for all, links the Discovery Centre with the riverside picnic area, the Garstang Millennium Green and the River Wyre.
