Home Parks Kents Hill Park

Kents Hill Park

Kents Hill Park contains a small woodland which pre-dates Milton Keynes and is located on a hill in the area between Walton Hall and Crowborough Lane. Interestingly, the soil beneath this woodland is not the typical clay found across Milton Keynes, but is more like the soil in the Bow Brickhill woods. This makes it an ideal location for growing trees such as conifers and Sweet Chestnut that don’t normally favour the clay soils.  More recent additional tree planting can be found in the parkland around the wood.

What to see and What to do

Don’t miss

Kents Hill Park is one of the best places to go in Milton Keynes to look at trees. The woodland was planted after the second world war and includes a variety of conifers including Douglas Fir, Corsican Pine and Norway Spruce. The area is becoming something of an arboretum with a broad variety of tree species such as Redwoods and Sweet Chestnut. 

It doesn’t take long to walk around Kents Hill Park, but it does link into the other local parks and connects with the Ouzel Valley Park if you want to take a longer stroll.
