Broughton Brook Magna Park
What to see and What to do
This is a lovely area of parkland that is well worth a visit for a taste of the countryside. Despite being close to the M1 and an industrial estate, Broughton Brook Park has a thriving wildlife population. At the top of the park, close to the fields which run alongside the M1, you may see hares, three different species of deer and foxes. The lake is a good place to see birds, and this can be walked around within about 20 minutes.
Look out for wild flowers as well as the different types of trees that can be found around the edge of the industrial estate; you may spot pines, firs and cedars.
Broughton Brook Park can be found at the top of the parkland; when the new parkland has been developed you will be able to walk along this section into the existing Broughton Linear Park.
There are picnic tables and seating in Magna Park; however there are no litter or dog bins so please take your rubbish home with you.
Private fishing licensed by MKAA is permitted onsite for bailiffs only.
