About Kingsmead

Enjoy a delightful escape into the wilderness of Kingsmead, a small area of parkland and woodland that connects to the rest of Milton Keynes' innovative system of parks through Tattenhoe and Westcroft. Ideally situated for residents nearby, this biodiversity gem boasts a well-maintained play area in the southwest, entertaining children of all ages.

While Kingsmead may be a modest woodland, its conversation value is immense. Presumed to be a remnant of ancient woodland with centuries-old veteran Oak and Ash trees, this small section holds significant ecological importance. During survey work undertaken in 2017, a rare species of Beetle was discovered as an example of its richness in wildlife. The area is a haven for amphibians and reptiles, where sightings of grass snakes are not uncommon. Noctule Bats are also known to roost in the wood.


No dedicated car parks are available at the wood, although parking is available on nearby residential streets. Public toilets aren't available.


The paths in the spinney itself are relatively flat and easy to traverse. However, many of the kerbs into the parkland are not dropped, which could make disabled access difficult.
