Who wants to go to the park? Us! (Now that the weather is improving). But which one? There are literally hundreds to choose from in Milton Keynes. There are plenty with basic climbing frames, swings and slides, and there’s probably a couple within walking distance from your house. Convenient, yes, but it can get a little dull for both the children, and for you. What we’ve found ourselves doing recently is seeking out the parks that offer something a bit extra. Downhead Park is one of those. I say Downhead Park… I found myself describing it as the ‘rhino park’ to my toddler. It has a cool multi-coloured rhino and a jeep as well as other play equipment, and there’s other places to visit if you don’t mind a bit of a walk. You can read all about it in my latest blog post.
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.
