Milton Country Park

Back to Activities

Milton Country Park is a family-friendly outdoor space with with lakes, walking/running/cycling routes, play areas and a café. It is managed by registered charity Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • getting outside and spending time in green spaces is a proven stress-buster;
  • there are many different ways to be active on the water or on land;
  • play areas allow children to jump, climb, hide and swing – all great for physical development and coordination.

“Whenever I have spare time, Milton Country Park is my go-to for some downtime by myself or with the family.” A Milton Country Park regular
