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.
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.
There are currently no public toilets at this site but these are being developed as part of the Adventure Golf Course and café development on site.
There are good all-weather paths around the lake with some steep gradients near the outflow close to the V4 car park.
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.
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.
