This multi-user greenway connecting Mickle Trafford with the centre of Chester opened in 2009. The return walk described here covers an attractive elevated section of it along an old railway embankment. It offers great views across the rooftops which can be glimpsed through gaps between the trees and bushes. The surface of the route is tarmacked throughout with no gradients steeper than 1:10. The section for this short walks begins alongside the public car park at the Council New Scene 'Live' club and finishes at the picturesque Northgate ponds (The 'Live' club, - see photo on the right - is managed by the Council and Barnardos and offers services for young people with learning disabilities, and they also repair and sell second hand bicycles and train youngsters in cycling road safety). There is a circular path round the sports field you can enjoy first, and kids can also play on the field; or you can immediately join the Greenway towards Chester for a linear walk and at the end of the walk enjoy sitting beside The Ponds where children can also play or go pond dipping from the platform. On a fine day you could also enjoy a picnic here (but no tables yet).

The walk is suitable for all the family and all ages and is excellent for dogs, wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled and there will be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are no refreshments, toilets or picnic tables but you will find a few bench seats along the route.
