    About Furzton Lake

    Furzton Lake in Milton Keynes boasts scenic open views making it a popular choice for joggers, cyclists and walkers. The lake was created to act as a basin for floodwaters during rainy spells and has matured into an easily accessible and peaceful oasis for local residents and wildlife to enjoy.


    The Italian Sul Lago café and restaurant is now open and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner options as well as coffee and cakes.

    There are public toilets available during The Italian Sul Lago's opening hours which can be accessed from the outside of their building.

    Free parking is available at the car park off V4 Watling St opposite the National Bowl and the car park off Lynmouth Crescent between Swimbridge Lane and Pinkworthy.
    There is also a car park offering 2 hours free parking off Shirwell Crescent, car parking charges apply after 2 hours. We have introduced charges in this area to protect parking spaces for genuine park users. Find out more here.


    Dinosaur Valley MK offers an exciting dinosaur-themed 12-hole adventure golf course.
    A Model Boat Club operates from Furzton, using the bays on the Lynmouth Crescent side of the lake.
    Fishing at the lake is managed by Milton Keynes Angling Association.
    Korfball is played on Thursday nights in the summer.


    There are good all-weather paths around the lake with some steep gradients near the outflow close to the V4 car park.


    Volunteers help The Parks Trust clear the islands of scrub and bramble, to provide a better habitat for ground nesting birds. The lake also has a large population of geese and other waterfowl.
