October Half Term at Willen Lake

21 October 2022

If you’re looking for some free fun this half-term, get down to Willen Lake and enjoy a spooky trail that could earn you and the kids a treat!

Milton Keynes’ most popular park has created a fun trail for younger visitors to get into the spirit of Hallowe’en – without the jump scares!

Located around the Willen Lake outdoor play area on a buggy-friendly path, the circular trail is short enough for even the littlest ones. Along the way, you’ll be challenged with family-friendly Hallowe’en quiz questions and enjoy some spooktastic jokes.

To take part, simply visit the Willen Lake Watersports Centre reception between 11am and 3pm from Saturday 22nd to Sunday 30th October. There, you can pick up details of how to follow the trail and where to claim a treat once you’ve successfully completed it.

In addition to the free Hallowe’en Trail, there’s plenty happening at Willen Lake this half term. For the utterly fearless, there are twilight sessions at Treetop Extreme which take the popular adventure ropes experience to a whole new level. WOW MK will be operating and provides great views of the changing autumn landscape from way up high. Boat hire is also available, and there’s great food and drink on sale at Benugo Bar & Kitchen.

Rob Wood, General Manager of Willen Lake, says, “Willen Lake is a park for all seasons and October half-term is a brilliant time to visit us. The Hallowe’en Trail builds extra fun into our new play area which is one of the most popular parts of the park. Little ones and parents can while away a couple of hours in the fresh air and enjoy a little treat on us too.”

    BBQs and gas stoves are not permitted at Willen Lake. This is due to the fire risks associated and to ensure the park is a safe and family friendly environment.
