Unfortunately you cannot train cats from going where they want to go. I have two elderly cats and they don't wander very far so do it in my garden but they did used to when they were younger and out hunting and wandering about all day.
You cannot keep cats in your own garden, they jump over the fence and gate. It is their natural instinct to wander and go hunting. I do appreciate, however, it does bother people who do not have cats of their own and they have the mess in their garden but no matter how responsible the cat owner you cannot tell a cat where to go. They are not like dogs.
