The Park Keeper and The Mystery of McKannor Manor is a unit of the BBC schools radio series Music Makers from the 1970s, covering music for primary and secondary school pupils.

Two separate units, the comic story of The Park Keeper in the first half of term, followed by The Mystery of McKannor Manor a 'thriller' about two incompetent detectives.

The Park Keeper was re-mounted in a new production by Music Makers in 1987 and there is a separate page about that production.
