Milton Keynes gets a bad rap for being made of concrete, but nothing can be further from the truth. Milton Keynes is a mix of how you can have commercial, housing, great road system and nature in one place. Having worked in MK for over 14 years, its great. One iconic place is Willen Lake with its senenic walks and... More

Absolutely love willen lake. Have been there multiple times and will continue to do so as there is something for everyone. It is the perfect place for a walk with the dog a stroll with a partner or for fun with the children. Beautiful lake and loads of activities. Would recommend over and over again

Great park, with boating lake, motorised water ski run. Cycle hire though thought that was too expensive. Restaurant/pub. Also has an adventure high rope attraction (additional cost).

I used to frequent this venue weekly but had not been for some time. I loved the revamped dining room and a far better menu. I plan to go again next week and will take some friends. I do think they could do with some extra staff as though the food was good the service was slow, this was not... More

Always like coming here, lovely walks round the lakes, nice seating areas and picnic areas. Facilities are great and a very friendly place to be, especially if the sun is shining

Lovely park, great for families, friends or couples. We went here for the day whilst visiting friends in MK. The park itself was bustlng as it was a lovely sunny day but not overcrowded, a lovely atmosphere. We hired a pedalo which was £15 for an hour, you can also hire kayaks and bikes. There are some lovely walks from... More

Willen Lake is advertised as Milton Keynes own Central Park. I wouldnt quite go that far, but there are quite a few biking and walking paths with circuit training stations around both lakes. There are very good sign posts with information and directions to all of the major attractions. By the north lake Jury Inn and Fayre and Square is... More

An enjoyable day out here. Lots of different things to do from water sports to an interesting walk round the lake with activities. Good park to High Ropes course. Downside was limited cafe and booked out pub which mean lunch wasn't great. Toilets in poor condition as well.

Its your best choice in MK if you want to have a nice break and spend some quality time outdoors. Very nice view and in close proximity to the centre.
