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 a peaceful oasis for local residents and wildlife to enjoy.

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

There are good all-weather paths around the lake, however there are some very steep gradients near the outflow close to the V4 car park. Please check on-site park maps for more detailed route information.
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.
