Milton Keynes Rose is based in Central Milton Keynes in Campbell Park. It was designed by internationally renowned artist Gordon Young. The Milton Keynes Rose is a vast and impressive open-air circle with markings based on the mathematical beauty of a flower. 106 granite pillars of varying heights emerge from the surface, many of which are inscribed with dates of events that have local, national or international significance. Regular events are held here to celebrate and commemorate significant days of the year.

The closest parking available is at Centre:MK, from there you can walk over the bridge to the event.
