A lovely lake to walk round with several interesting features including a Buddist monument, a stone circle & bird hides. If you sit on one of the many seats you may get swans for company but beware of the Canada geese. Be careful where you park as many car parks now have charges.

The sun was shining, the small train was great fun and the staff were really helpful, checking the boat before we went out. Would highly recommend for a stroll, picnic or just an afternoon out of the house. The exercise activities... More

Lovely break from the sprawling city of Milton Keynes. Very pleasant walking all around taking up to an hour to get around depending on you walking pace.

Lovely to walk around the lake if it's a nice day. Couple of places to get coffee. Good play area if there are kids. You can ride you bike around it too, if that's your thing

The lake is nice but given the Car Parking charges there is not enough there to justify it over any of the other lakes in Milton Keynes. Will not bother going back.
