There’s a small, good play area just off Hindhead Knoll in Walnut Tree in Milton Keynes. It’s one of many reviews of parks and play areas for children in Milton Keynes that you’ll find on this website.

Where is the Hindhead Knoll play area?
The Hindhead Knoll play area is just off Hindhead Knoll in the residential area of Walnut Tree in Milton Keynes. It lies between the Blackberry Clinic and ‘The Venue’ which is next to Walton High School. The closest postcode is MK7 7PB. You can park easily. There are a number of parking spaces. The play area is not fenced so do bear that in mind if visiting with younger children.
What’s at the play area?
There’s a climbing frame with slide, swings, see-saw, and roundabout. One of the swings is a baby swing, the other is a big swing. The equipment is wooden and a great size for my youngest son who was 5 at the times we went. My 7 year old still likes it too although it’s probably more suitable for younger ones. It’s not gated but it’s fenced round for much of it. There’s also a little free library. It’s one of our favourite little book libraries as it’s decorated beautifully and there’s generally books in it.
Are there any downsides to this park?
I have generally taken my two sons at the weekend or in the school holidays so haven’t noticed any downsides. Others have told me it can get busy after school as it’s located right next to the school so it might be worth avoiding at that time if you’d prefer to go when it’s quieter and have younger children.
Where else can we go after the park in Hindhead Knoll, Walnut Tree?
If you’re driving then there are lots of parks in Milton Keynes very close by. I recommend the Winnie-the-Pooh park in Browns Wood, the castle park in Wavendon Gate and several parks in Monkston. If you’re on foot then it’s definitely worth the short walk to the snail park. You simply head up Hindhead Knoll on to Walton Road – keep looking left and through the grassed area near Pinfold you’ll spot the snails. From memory, once you’ve been there you can carry on walking along Walton Road – there’s a play area near Tamworth Stubb / Tatling Grove,
