Don’t miss
Millfield is well worth a visit if you are interested in wildflowers; there is a meadow section which features many wildflowers throughout the year. See if you can spot species including yarrow, knapweed, bedstraw, oxeye daisy, birdsfoot trefoil, ragged robin, plantains, cowslip, selfheal, buttercup, yellow rattle, sorrel, betony and clover. There is also an attractive avenue of Black Poplars along the path by the river.

Millfield is a good place for dog walking and there is also an area for recreational play, with rugby posts. There is a fenced off play area at the bottom of the park; this is not managed or maintained by The Parks Trust.

Please remember that this is a floodplain and so is prone to flooding.

    Lodge Lake park.jpg

    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.
