R3EVOLUTION by Sara Myers (2018)

R3EVOLUTION, by Sara Myers, is a striking sculpture made from Corten steel, which will change colour as time and seasons pass, located on the island in Lodge Lake, near the Bradwell Road car park off Dansteed Way the sculpture can be viewed from the Redway.

The piece depicts a lake scene, with fish and other wildlife featured. R3EVOLUTION offers a synthesis of nature and technology, thanks to the powerful combination of its industrial, urban material and natural, wildlife theme.

Loughton and Great Holm Parish Council commissioned Sara, a local artist, to celebrate 50 years of Milton Keynes. She was inspired to create a work that reflects the way the natural parkland and spaces of the city harmonise with modern urban living. R3EVOLUTION celebrates the diversity of life through the wildlife depicted that are in Lodge Lake and was installed in October 2018.

    Lodge Lake is one of the city's ‘on-line’ balancing lakes. It was created in 1981 by building a dam across the Loughton Brook. This holds back water as flow rates in the brook increase, helping to prevent flooding in downstream areas. 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.

    Refreshments
    None on site; the nearest shops are located in Great Holm about five minutes’ walk to the west. A Chinese restaurant, the Kam Tong Garden, overlooks the lake.
