Home What's on MK Rose

MK Rose

The MK Rose, located in Campbell Park, is a new public space for Milton Keynes where everyone can commemorate, celebrate or remember a special person or event throughout the year.  Created by internationally renowned artist Gordon Young, the MK Rose features a calendar of days important to the people of Milton Keynes.  These are represented by 105 pillars arranged in the geometric design of a flower. So far, 62 pillars have been inscribed (list of agreed pillars so far available here) and 43 others have been left for future dedications.

Getting Involved With MK Rose

If you would like to get involved with MK Rose by holding an event there please complete the application form and send it to events@theparkstrust.com and one of the team will contact you. Because Campbell Park and the MK Rose are used regularly for many different events and gatherings, we’ll be able to advise about all the activities taking place so that we can be certain that other planned events do not clash.  We would be happy to help ensure that all activities are safe and we can also help to promote your activities.
