Amazing Autumn Activities in MK’s parks

As the leaves turn golden and the evenings draw in, there’s still plenty to get up to in

MK’s parks this Autumn, with The Parks Trust.

Apple Day promises a juicy autumnal experience this half term, in the Community

Orchard in Woughton-on-the Green, with apple-themed activities, crafts and games

for all ages. On Saturday 21st October, 12pm-3pm, everyone can have a go at apple

pressing, explore the natural world and wildlife, and enjoy face painting, storytelling,

and live music, whilst feasting on refreshments from local vendors.

FREE half term fun to be had at Howe Park Wood Open Mornings, 9.30am-12.30pm

on 24th , 25th and 26th October. Explore autumnal nature with themed challenges and

self-guided trails, whilst learning about wildlife like bats and spiders in the Education

Centre. Alternatively, head to Linford Wood to join professional storyteller Red

Phoenix for autumnal tales at 2pm on 23rd October - family tickets for Stories In The

Park are just £5!

All aboard for the final spaces on Electra Walk, Glide and Dine events on 14th and 15th

October. Discover the Grand Union Canal between Campbell Park and Great Linford,

taking a towpath tour in one direction and a relaxing return journey on all-electric

Electra – with time for lunch too.

Campbell Park bustles with activity this season. Prost! It’s time again to step inside

the Bier tent to indulge in the Bavarian entertainment of Oktoberfest on 13 th and 14 th

October. Shortly followed by MK Foodbank’s MK Can Record attempt for the longest

line of cans of food, which will snake through the park on 16 th October. Wrapping up

with the return of the Keith Emmett and Sons Funfair in November, including, on

Saturday 4 th , the much-loved Firework Spectacular.

As the end of the year approaches, the Women’s Walking Network sees out the year-

round programme with the final few walks taking place at Caldecotte Lake on 2nd

November and Howe Park Wood on 7th December. It’s a great way to discover MK’s

parks while encouraging women to come together and make new friends.

For a more leisurely walk, Great Linford Manor Park Guided Walks occur twice

each month, the second Friday at 10.30am and last Sunday at 2pm. All ages are

invited to stroll the stunning grounds with playable sculptures, ornate seating, the

much-loved veteran lime tree, and delightful ponds.

If you’re looking to get involved in community volunteering, you could help improve

the environment for local wildlife and remove any hazards, by joining the united litter

pick of Broughton Brook, led by a Parks Trust Ranger from 10am on 30th October.
