A brand new stargazing event will be held in Milton Keynes parkland next year.
The Parks Trust has announced Stars in the Park, a new event for 2019, in collaboration with UK Astronomy, that will allow families and beginners to learn more about the solar system and stargaze.
Next year will also see the return of some familiar events, including MK Playday, the largest free play event in Milton Keynes – with activities, games and stage entertainment. Produced by the MK Playday Partnership the event will take place on Wednesday August 7.
Before then the Big Doggie Do will held at Willen Lake South on May 25 and 26 as well as World Picnic, at Campbell Park on Sunday July 28.
There will also be a variety of familiar regular activities, including monthly Women’s Walking Network sessions where women of all ages and abilities come together for a walk around different areas of parkland, Woof Walks for those who would like to bring their dog with them to explore, and Community Litter Picks, accessible for all those wanting to help eliminate litter and protect local wildlife.
The pocket sized 2019 What’s on Guide, sponsored by Vodafone, can be picked up from The Parks Trust’s office in Campbell Park or its education centres at Linford Lakes Nature Reserve and Howe Park Wood.
The booklets, which also give details of MK Festival of History and MK Walking Festival, can also be picked up at MK Central library and Milton Keynes Visitor Centre.
