Willen On Ice promises chills, thrills, and icy adventures at Milton Keynes’ most popular park this festive season. Fun for families and friends alike, the purpose-built ice rink opens 17th November 2023 until 7th January 2024. 

Robert Cook, Director at ice rink provider Ice Leisure Group says: ”We’re really excited to be opening in Milton Keynes this winter. Skating next to the lake under the decorated marquee is going to be truly magical.” 

Robert Wood, General Manager at Willen Lake adds: “We’re delighted to be providing families with a fun new festive event. Willen On Ice will add a whole new dimension to the Willen Lake experience.” 

Featuring over 400m2 of real ice and located just off the main path overlooking the lake, skaters will glide under a festively decorated marquee.

The rink will be open most days, however tickets should be booked online in advance to avoid missing out.
