Overview
More
Willen Lake is Milton Keynes’ most popular park. Over one million visitors a year take part in watersports activities, go cycling, enjoy the playground, try the high ropes course or simply picnic along Willen’s shores. It’s a great place to entertain all ages of family and friends, whether it’s a visit to the café or restaurant, a stroll, trying a beginners’ course in sailing or hiring a pedalo or bike. The park is open year round and there is no admission fee, other than during special events when some areas may be unavailable to the general public, or a fee may be charged. (Note that car parking charges apply.) Leisure activities at Willen Lake are managed by Whitecap Leisure Ltd, a trading subsidiary of The Parks Trust.

Another beautiful park within the huge city of Milton Keynes. It has easy paths to follow, large open green spaces, a nice lake and several monuments. Used by joggers, dog walkers or people just wanting some fresh air. Worth a visit 🙂

We wanted a long walk around the lake but there is so much else to do there, - even water skiing with the aid of a crane like machine. I've not seen one before. On the walk there were various 'exercise stations' which kept my...More

...A very pleasant stroll around the lake on Boxing Day. Only a couple of pounds to park, and once we got a few hundred yards from the hotel and pub, we had the walk virtually to ourselves. The full walk round is about 2 miles,...More

This is a great place for a walk. Willen Lake is split into two so there’s plenty of choice when it comes to deciding the length of walk. One side is more busy with the hotel, cafe and play area and the other side borders...More

The car park (as another reviewer noted) has been contracted out to Napier Parking and they are out to make a lot of money. It is a numberplate-recognition system and you have to pay before you leave. Unfamiliar with the new system I found I...More
