There are so many different places you can take your children in warm weather… parks, country parks, and lovely woodland areas are all cheap options. And yet when it’s really hot, all the kids want to do is cool down. One of the best places we discovered they can do that and have a brilliant day out for free is Leighton Buzzard splash park. It’s only 20-25 mins from MK and the short car journey is well worth the trip. There’s a beach there too so take a bucket and spade. There’s a good range of play equipment and although it’s a bit old school, there’s enough there to enjoy. See all the pics and find out where the best place to park is in my latest blog post about Leighton Buzzard Splash Park.
I'm Laura, mum of two boys - aged six and four. 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 four 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. Don't forget to follow all of our latest adventures on facebook, instagram and twitter and have a look at all of the videos of the places we visit on the Milton Keynes Kids YouTube Channel - subscribe to it for notifications every time I add a new place. And remember... you may been reading this post months after we visited, do check with the destination you're visiting for up to date opening times and prices. If you find this blog useful then please do comment on my posts and leave me a Facebook review - it makes doing this all the more worthwhile.
