The pirate park in Loughton, Milton Keynes is a great park to visit and fun for all ages because of its really good range of play equipment and sandy areas. Watch our video below to see what it’s like and then scroll down for more information.
What’s at the pirate ship park in Loughton, Milton Keynes?
The highlight is of course the wooden pirate ship. Aged three when we visited, my eldest son could confidently climb up it and pretend to steer the ship. My youngest son (one when we went) went underneath the ship. It’s all set in sand so even if your children are really little they can take a bucket and spade and do some good digging. My eldest enjoyed the spinning pirate and we all liked the see-saw. There’s a big swing and a hammock style swing too. For slightly older children there’s a good size wooden climbing frame.
Where can we find the pirate park in Loughton?
It’s just behind the sports and social club. The address is Linceslade Grove, Milton Keynes, MK5 8DJ. We found it easily. There was a car park on the opposite side of the road. We went on a weekend, but apparently it can get busy on weekdays after school.
What can do we once we’ve finished playing at the pirate park in Loughton?
Lodge Lake is only a very short distance away on the other side of Portway. There’s no play equipment there but it is a lovely place for a walk and not too far for young children – it takes around 20-30 minutes to walk around the lake. The next closest parks that we really like are at Two Mile Ash which has a good slide, smaller climbing frame and a fairy garden, and the Wind in the Willows park at Great Holm (pictured below).
