Play Areas

The Parks Trust care for over 40 parks in Milton Keynes so you’re never more than half a mile from a park. Many of these parks also have play areas, we look after many free to use play areas across the city. Having these facilities right on your doorstep is hugely beneficial as play areas provide children with the opportunity to develop their physical strength, social interactions and build their confidence.

    While The Parks Trust maintains Brooklands Meadow Park it is not yet officially our land and is currently owned by Places for People. A modern, well thought out flood retention site with a dam structure, it ensures the surrounding houses don’t flood in times of heavy rain. As the area develops, there are plans for this park to link up with the other linear parks nearby.
