The Coton Footpath is a popular recreational walk from Cambridge to Coton. It begins in the city centre, crossing the River Cam, passing alongside the University's West Cambridge site south of Madingley Road, then crossing the M11 motorway, bypassing Coton Orchard and terminating at the village recreation ground. In 2003, as part of the West Cambridge building project, a section of the path is being widened to separate cyclists and pedestrians.
