With Milton Keynes being over 80 miles from the nearest beach and when the weather is hot, hot, hot who wants to travel all that way in a boiling car, getting stuck in traffic jams? Why not visit Willen Lake instead?

Our lakeside park offers beautiful views and a cooling breeze, plus we have an outdoor splash park which is the perfect way to cool down! With over 60 interactive features, Splash ‘n’ Play at Willen Lake is one of the UK’s largest outdoor splash parks and it’s located right in the heart of Milton Keynes.

Over the six weeks of summer, Splash ‘n’ Play is open daily at Willen Lake and is brilliant fun for children aged 0 to 13 years. Dash through our water tunnel, captain the sailboat as you pretend to sail the seven seas, shoot make-believe pirates (or mum and dad) with the water cannons or wait to be drenched by the super splash bucket! For tiny tots we also have a dedicated bespoke water journey where they can safely play in a calmer environment, away from the older kids.

Our purpose-built Splash ‘n’ Play area is fully secure and has dedicated facilities such as toilets and changing rooms plus a café and outdoor seating, so mum and dad can enjoy a drink or home-made ice cream in our designated viewing area whilst supervising their little ones. Our Splash ‘n’ Play sessions last for 30 minutes and run throughout the day, prices start at £3 per session (adults go free) and we recommend booking online in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you’re looking for a birthday party with a difference, then we might have the solution for you, our Splash ‘n’ Play pad is available for birthday parties through the summer too! For £180, twenty children can enjoy exclusive access to the splash pad for an entire 60 minutes, our party host will make sure that everyone is having lots of fun and at the end of the session each child will get a delicious homemade ice cream plus a party bag to go home with!
