The Parks Trust, the self-financing charity that manages and maintains over 5,000 acres of green space across Milton Keynes, is proud to present its 2018 What’s on Guide.

The Parks Trust's 2018 whats on guideThis handy, pocket size booklet details all the events and activities that will take place across the city throughout the year, with everything from smaller, regular events like Parks and Run and Women’s Walking Network through to bigger events including World Picnic and Festival of Nature.

This year also sees the return of the hugely popular Big Doggie Do, a canine-focused festival with stalls, activities and dog shows. The event has also been extended to two days for 2018 and will be held 26th – 27th May.

Other larger events to return to the calendar include the Easter Egg Hunt, to be held at Willen Lake North on Thursday 29th March and May Day celebrations, at Great Linford Manor Park on Saturday 5th May.

In addition, a variety of new, regular activities have been introduced, including monthly Guided Walks around different areas of parkland, Woof Walks for those who would like to bring their dog with them to explore, and Discovery Strolls, shorter strolls for those of any age and ability.

Julie Dawes, Events & Community Engagement Manager for The Parks Trust, commented: “We are very pleased to present our 2018 What’s on Guide, which details hundreds of opportunities to get outside and explore our beautiful parkland. We organise and enable over 500 events and activities every year, working closely with local community groups and other organisations, to ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to seeing you all!”
