Splash parks, beaches and sandpits

We don’t live anywhere near the coast! These are the best places to find either sand, water or both within an hour of Milton Keynes.

These fun places all have splash parks. Don’t forget to check opening times and dates with the destination themselves as most are seasonal and open at selected times of the year.
