This event is in the past. This page is for information purposes only.

Join us this February Half-Term at our Howe Park Wood Education Centre Open Days on Tuesday 18th and Friday 21st February 2020.

Visitors can participate in a variety of fun and family friendly activities such as:

  • Wander through the wood on a scavenger hunt as a Nature Detective.
  • Discover a variety of natural artefacts, such as nests, skulls and feathers, found across our different parks.
  • Become a bug hunter, keeping an eye out for some of the 30 different butterfly species that call Howe Park Wood home!

Howe Park Wood is one of Milton Keynes' jewels, a tranquil oasis, humming with wildlife and colour. As well as being home to a wide variety of wildlife, Howe Park boasts more than 200 plant species, some so rare that English Nature has designated it a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its wildlife value.

The Howe Park Wood Open Day's will also be running in other Half-Term and School Holidays throughout 2020.

No booking required, we hope to see you there!

    Howe Park is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Parts of it may be rare surviving fragments of the 'wildwood' that covered the whole of lowland Britain after the last Ice Age, 6-11,000 years ago.

    Refreshments
    There is a café at Howe Park Wood serving cakes, drinks and cold foods.
