The Serjeants Green play area in the residential area of Neath Hill, Milton Keynes was revamped in Spring of 2021. We visited shortly after it opened, then returned in August 2021 on which this review is based.
Where is Serjeants Green play area located?
The play area is located just off Serjeants Green in Neath Hill, Milton Keynes. It’s really easy to find. It’s located opposite Neath Hill local centre. We parked on Tower Drive. The postcode to get you there is MK14 6NA which is for the day centre. Don’t go that far. Park on the road just before then. The local centre with all the shops will be on your right. Serjeants Green park is on your left.
What’s the Serjeants Green play area in Neath Hill like?
The park in Neath Hill has got lots of great play equipment. The wooden tower climbing frame has got a lower level slide but it also has high bars for sliding down which are very steep. My eldest son, who was eight at the time we visited loves this kind of thing so it really appeals to him. You would need to watch young children keep to the lower level though. There is a parent and child swing, baby swings, a nest swing and an accessible roundabout. There’s also a see-saw and floor trampoline. In the middle there is a multi-games area for football and basketball. To the side of that there is a good sized green metal climbing frame and a wooden obstacle course. It’s a good sized play area. I’d say it appeals to most ages although there are other play areas in Milton Keynes which are better suited to young toddlers as there isn’t a small climbing frame. It isn’t gated. It is set back from the road though. It is very close to the local school and opposite the shops so I imagine it gets busy at the end of school time. We went on a weekday in the school holidays when it was quiet.
Where else could we go after Neath Hill?
You could go to Pennylands local park which is about a 5 minute walk away. It’s a bit difficult to describe so you may be better looking on google maps, but you need to walk along Tower Drive with the school on your left. Before the end of the school grounds you’ll come to a residential road (also Tower Drive), turn right there. You will feel like you’re walking into a dead end, but at the end of the road you’ll see a public footpath with an underpass to the right saying Pennylands. The play area is through there. It has a big twisty slide and some other play equipment. From Pennylands you can then walk to the canal to spot some of the artworks as part of the Gyosei art trail or you could go to Great Linford where there’s several good play areas. Have a look at my map of the best parks and walks to see where you fancy going.
