Downs Barn Park
Is this the biggest slide in Milton Keynes? It’s at Downs Barn Park. It’s definitely a park that older children will enjoy with lots of wooden balance beams, steps and wobbly bridges to climb up to the top of the hill. I was out of puff walking up there a few times. Probably unfit though. Braver younger children may also like it, but perhaps not one for young tots. My eldest used to be a bit apprehensive of bigger slides but since he turned three they seem to excite him. There are some baby swings and a few pieces of other equipment. It could probably do with a bit of a revamp when you compare it to the likes of Stanton Low Park but it’s still worth a visit. MK14 7LN is the best postcode. That takes you to the residential area of Bayard Avenue. The park is behind there. Looking for lots of other good parks? Check out the parks section of my website.
