Parklife, our free family fun day at Milton Country Park is to be held this year on Sunday 1 July. We expect around 4,000 visitors to take part in a host of great activities.
Organised in partnership with Cambridge Sports Lakes Trust, Parklife allows visitors to explore a variety of ways to improve their health and wellbeing and the opportunity to try a range of sports with a view to inspiring them to be more active.
We will be bringing back the action packed Cycling Zone, offering a myriad of bikes to try out, from multi-person, recumbent, balance and all-ability bikes in addition to the popular pedal-powered Scalextric, Cycle Sprints & Smoothie Makers.
Our Water Zone will feature Kayaking, Canoeing and Paddleboarding plus the chance to try your hand at angling too. The qualified instructors can take visitors through these water sports allowing them to quickly take to the water and have fun on the lake.
Watersports are normally popular, so there will be a booking system with limited spaces bookable in advance and the remainder bookable on the day. Age and height restrictions apply so please check the eligibility criteria. An administration fee will apply for advanced bookings. One advance session can be booked per person from Friday 1 June. To book your place visit www.miltoncountrypark.org/parklife
Back by popular demand is the Wild South Cambs Zone, where our visitors can get hands on, with den building, fire-lighting and pond dipping.
All new for 2018 will be a mobile caving system, as well as the old favourite's Archery, Climbing Walls, & Sawston Leisure's Inflatable Zorbs and Speed Goal.
There’ll be entertainment too, with live music, dancing and lots of opportunities to join in.
In addition there will be a range of refreshments for you to enjoy, a Vintage Tea Tent and plenty of space for you to picnic.
All activities are free of charge, you just need to turn up to take a turn. However, bookings for paddleboarding, canoeing and kayaking, can be either made on the day, or booked in advance as nearer the time we will be making some sessions available for pre booking.
We are always looking for sponsors to help us stage this extremely popular event. If you would like to support us please contact Kirstin Donaldson on 01954 712908.
