Milton Country Park

Milton Country Park

Created from old gravel pits the park offers a varied natural habitat with woodland, lakes, and attractive pathways suitable for bicycles and wheelchairs.  Dogs are welcome and can be walked off-lead anywhere north of the 13th public drain. 

There is also a visitors' centre, café, two children's playgrounds, and a varied activity and events programme. You can hire the facilities for a meeting or party and even hold a wedding in the park. 

The park has a combination of woodland, water and grassy meadow habitats which are carefully managed to support and enhance diversity and the natural environment.  Throughout the year there is an abundance of wildlife to see and enjoy.  

Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust manages the park, building on the activities and events programme while sensitively managing habitats so that everyone can enjoy this valuable green space. 

Community group


Volunteering is a great way to support the park, get involved and make a difference.  We have several regular volunteer groups you can join depending on our interests. 

The park runs a regular drop-in volunteer session on Thursday mornings from 9am - 12pm.  You can join the duty ranger to take part in a variety of practical outdoor projects around the park which have a habitat management and conservation purpose.  

The orchard volunteers maintain the park's community orchard and meet monthly, usually on the first Sunday of the month at 10.30am.  Work parties vary and include maintenance and general gardening, planting, bee-keeping and running the apple press for the popular Autumn Festival.  They also organise activities such as pruning workshops and species counts.
