This is Brooklands Park in Milton Keynes. It’s one of our favourite parks in MK so we thought we’d update the pictures and make a video of our visit. Watch the video below and then scroll down for details.
This is probably the park in MK that we have visited the most. It has a sand pit area and wooden structure for children to climb up and then put the sand down the chutes. It resembles a smaller version of the sand and water pump area at Sywell Country Park – but there’s no water. There’s a small climbing frame which is good for toddlers and a larger climbing frame which has a wide bumpy slide. The tarmac floor is multi-coloured. There are animal shaped rockers as well as carved wooden animal sculptures. There’s a fun wobbly pirate ship and a baby swing.
The park is beautiful in the summer and set amongst wild flowers. It’s easy to get to – the best postcode is MK10 7ER which takes you to Trafalgar Drive which is the road opposite the park. It is of course a residential area so please be considerate to people living there when parking. My boys enjoy walking over the bridges to get to the park. There aren’t any benches there from what I remember but if you take a blanket you could easily take a picnic there in good weather. It’s a good sized park and fun for children of all ages. If you’re looking for other good parks in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas check out the parks section of Milton Keynes Kids and for all of the latest places we’ve been to have a look at what’s new section on the home page.

I'm Laura, mum of two boys - aged five and three. I started this website at the end of Sept 2015 whilst on maternity leave. I now work four days a week and do this blog late at night once the little boys are sleeping. It's won several awards over the last three years and I continue to run it for free and mostly focus on free, cheap, and good value days out. Do drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me.
