Broughton Brook

This park follows Broughton Brook, from Pineham through the length of Broughton  and into Kingston - offering local residents an attractive outlook and a quiet place to escape with the family, the dog…or their own thoughts.

A hidden jewel, and one of Milton Keynes’ most interesting wildlife sites is how the Parks Trust views Elfield Park

Floodplain Forest

The landscape is designed to flood regularly when water levels in the river Great Ouse rise, maturing into a diverse ecosystem.

Great Linford Brick Kilns

Located in Great Linford near the Grand Union Canal are 2 well preserved and renovated 19th Century Brick Kilns.

Hazeley Wood

One of the best features of Hazeley Wood are the enormous grass rides which cut through the woodland, opening up views.

Howe Park Wood

Howe Park is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. A visit to Howe Park Wood is an opportunity to understand the lifecycle of a wood.

Linford Manor Park

A visit to the Manor Park at Great Linford gives a flavour of the 18th century fashion for shaping the landscape.

Linford Wood

Linford Wood is the largest and oldest of the Trust's three ancient woodlands. Linford Wood provides a tranquil haven for wildlife and people

Lodge Lake

The Lake is perfect for a short outing - a gentle walk around the lake edge takes about 30 minutes -  with plenty of interest on and off the water year-round

North Loughton Valley Park

North Loughton Valley Park features include historical items and some world famous Milton Keynes' icons!

Ouse Valley Park

The park is the most rural of any found in Milton Keynes and is a great place to go to experience the feeling of the countryside without leaving the city.

Ouzel Valley Park

Ouzel Valley Park has a spacious, open atmosphere with long views. Much of this land is leased for grazing by The Parks Trust.



Shenley Wood

Shenley Wood is one of three ancient woodlands in Milton Keynes, a wonderful spot for a quiet walk and to enjoy the abundant wildlife.


Formerly known as the Simpson balancing reservoir these lakes were formed in around 2006 to provide a more attractive and interesting area of parkland for the adjoining housing development at Ashland.  It comprises a chain of connected lakes and an ornamental pond with a fountain.

Stantonbury Fields

Mount Farm Trials Park

Parkland at Mount Farm is currently leased out for use by the Milton Buzzard Motorcycle Club.  The site is located off the V8 Marlborough Street, by the Mount Farm roundabout

Tattenhoe Valley

Tattenhoe Valley Park runs like a green thread from Furzton Lake through Emerson Valley, Tattenhoe and Tattenhoe Park, following the meanderings of the Loughton Brook until it leaves Milton Keynes at Bottledump Roundabout.

Oxley Park

The linear stretches of parkland at Oxley Park were created to serve the local housing development. The parkland contains play areas for local children

Teardrop Lakes

Part of the Loughton Valley Park,  the four Teardrop Lakes are also a destination in their own right, providing fishing waters and a peaceful escape for those working in nearby offices.


The Parks Trust looks after an area of informal meadows, long grass and ponds which is managed for wildlife.  The land is located around the allotments which are owned by Broughton & Milton Keynes Parish Council.  There is also a small community orchard next to the allotments.

Tree Cathedral (Newlands)

Contrary to what many believe, Milton Keynes does have its own cathedral. But like the city itself, this cathedral is unique - made from bark and leaves rather than bricks and mortar.

Loughton Valley Park

Walton Lake

Originally built as a 'balancing lake' for the River Ouzel, Walton Lake is one of the richest spots in Milton Keynes to enjoy wildlife.

Stonepit Field Park

Stonepit Field is the location for many events including wildflower walks and fossil hunts.  It is also a great place for dog walking. Stonepit Field gets its name from the nearby small limestone quarry, long disused, from which some of the oldest buildings in Great Linford were sourced.

Waterhall Park

Hidden at the very southern corner of Milton Keynes, Waterhall Park is the perfect place to spot wildlife. Waterhall is a wonderful spot to study the life of the riverbank.


The Parks Trust acquired 218 acres of land in Passenham/Old Stratford in 2011.  Located across the river and footbridge from the Trust’s riverside parkland in Stony Stratford, the land is a mix of arable land and flood plain meadows and ancient ridge and furrow pasture.

Willen Lake North

North Willen Lake is home to one of Milton Keynes’ best-known landmarks, the first Peace Pagoda to be built in the western world - and to a rich and varied bird population.

Willen Lake South

South Willen Lake is the busiest park in the region, attracting more than one million visitors each year to take part in water sports, golf, high ropes, special events, or to jog, picnic, walk, play, or just watch everyone else!

Linford Lakes
