Willen Lake, Milton Keynes

(3.7/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
One of the more important features of the area is a large lake on the River Ouzel, Willen Lake. This lake was designed to capture flash floods in case they cause problems downstream. The north basin is a wildlife sanctuary and a favorite of migrating aquatic birds, so during your exploration you can watch for interesting animals. The south basin is for leisure use and a hotspot for activity, favored by wind surfers and dinghy sailors. The circuit of the lakes is a favored running spot as well. Make Willen Lake part of your personalized Milton Keynes itinerary using our Milton Keynes trip itinerary planner.
