Newlands

What to see and What to do

Don’t miss

Newlands is a great location to build into a wider walk along the linear parkland, as not only does it sit between Campbell Park and Willen Lake, but it also leads through to Woolstone and the Ouzel Valley Park to the south. Be sure to walk along the canal on the western side of Newlands and look at the boats which are moored there.

Newlands boasts some notable trees, with lines of Poplars along the canal and a developing avenue of Hornbeam elsewhere in the parkland. There is also a small pond which functions as overspill for the canal – this is often dry in summer.

    The Ouse Valley Park lies in the floodplain of the Great Ouse which flows from Oxfordshire to the Wash. The park is the most rural of any found in Milton Keynes and is a great place to go to experience the feeling of the countryside without leaving the city. Old trees, hedgerows, meadows, and new plantations combine to provide excellent habitats for wildlife.
