Oxley Park

Play areas
The parkland contains play areas for local children.

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems
The parkland includes a number of ponds that are designed as a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).

SUDS are designed to store water run-off from roads, paths, car parks and roofs during and after periods of heavy rainfall. The water is stored in dry ditches (swales), ponds and wetlands and then released at a controlled rate into Shenley Brook and eventually Furzton Lake.  The water levels in the ponds are carefully designed to fluctuate and in extreme weather can rise.

Car parking
There is no public car parking associated with the parkland at Oxley Park.

Toilets
There are no toilet facilities at this park.

Disabled access
There are surfaced footpaths throughout the linear parkland.

    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.

    Refreshments
    Refreshments can be found at Stony Stratford, Wolverton and New Bradwell alongside the park. At Old Wolverton the route passes directly by the Wolverton House pub restaurant.

    Ouzel Valley Park - park.jpg

    The Ouzel Valley Park meanders from Caldecotte Lake in the south to Willen Lake in the north. The park has a spacious, open atmosphere with long views. Much of the land is farmed by The Parks Trust rearing our own cattle and sheep, between the livestock you can still see the remnants of an old field system with the ridge and furrow still visible. Incorporating the historic villages of Woolstone and Woughton, the park is bordered on its western side by the Grand Union Canal.

    Refreshments
    There is the Ye Olde Swan pub at Woughton on the Green and a further two pubs - the Barge and the Cross Keys – that are located on Newport Road in Woolstone village.
