Wolverton Mill Balancing Lake
About Wolverton Mill Balancing Lake
Wolverton Mill is a pair of small balancing lakes which connects to the wider Ouse Valley Park. This area was previously agricultural land and the balancing lakes were created to help prevent flooding in nearby areas. As you wander through the area see if you can spot any of the veteran trees situated in the park.
Fishing is permitted at Wolverton Mill Balancing Lake. Find out more on the Milton Keynes Angling Association website.
Car parking is available at the Watermill Lane car park which is situated on the opposite side of Stratford Road.
There are no public toilets or cafés in the parkland, however, there is a café nearby in Warren Park which is part of The Parks Trust's property portfolio. Stony Stratford High Street is also around a 15-minute walk away and boasts a range of restaurants and cafés.
There is one main hard surfaced path through the Wolverton Mill parkland which is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies.
