Outdoor Learning

Every year we help around 6,000 people to learn about their local environment through outdoor learning sessions.  The school and community groups that take advantage of Milton Keynes’ fantastic outdoor classrooms are amongst the parks’ most enthusiastic visitors.

We recognise that they come from a variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, so we’ve created programmes that cater for all ages, abilities and learning styles.

For many of our visitors the outdoor learning programme is their first chance to get up close and personal with the natural world.  To ensure they get the most from their visit our team has developed an exciting array of activities, which we can offer all year round and tailor to the needs of your group.

We think it’s important to deliver something that is fun as well as educational, and to give all participants an understanding and appreciation of their local environment that will help ensure the parks are valued and respected in the future.

By doing this we hope that our outdoor learning opportunities will help Milton Keynes to have the most environmentally responsible citizens of any town in the UK.

  • Bat Walk Feedback From The Open University, Sep 2018

    Always a fun and informative evening. Just to say thank you for this – we really enjoyed it. Thank you once again; learn something new each time and the bat fossil was amazing.
