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.
