Downhead Park (rhino park)
With there being so many parks in Milton Keynes to enjoy, it can be difficult to decide which ones to go to. So we love visiting parks that are distinctive in some way. They don’t have to be brand new, huge, or have lots of sand, but they do have to be memorable or have at least one piece of equipment my toddler will absolutely love. Downhead Park is one of those. What stood out for us was the multi-coloured rhino and the jeep. My toddler didn’t actually climb on the rhino but he liked looking at it. He spent most of the time pretending to drive the wobbly jeep and was loved insisting that I was his passenger. In fact, he probably would have enjoyed the park if the car was the only thing there. There’s also a big swing, a good slide, a wobbly bridge and some other play equipment. A short walk over the bridge and go straight on and you’ll find Camphill Café. Going over the bridge and turning left you’ll find the tree cathedral.
ADDRESS – We parked on Colesbourne Drive, approximate postcode MK15 9AP
