On Sunday 19 May, Parklife, our free family fun day in partnership with Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust returns to Milton County Park.

Every year, Parklife brings together thousands of people for free activities and entertainment. It's a great chance to try something new and see what you could take further to help you lead a more active and healthier lifestyle.

Activities are free of charge and returning favourites this year will be the mobile caving system, inflatable zorbs, archery, climbing walls, bouncy castles (please make sure children bring socks), balance and all ability bikes, bush craft and pond dipping.


Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust is a charity committed to creating opportunities to access outdoor sport and activities. The park's water sports programme runs from April to September and includes their popular paddleboarding, canoeing, open water swimming and paddle club sessions.

Parklife gives everyone the opportunity of free taster sessions in paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.

The watersports are very popular so there will be a booking system with a limited number of spaces bookable in advance and the remainder bookable on the day.

Watersports Bookings can be found here


Visitors can book one watersports activity per person in advance online at from 9am on Tuesday 23 April until midnight on Friday 17 May. Be quick, once they're gone, they're gone! Age and height restrictions also apply so please check the eligibility criteria. An administration fee will apply to advanced bookings. 


Bookings for activities on the day will open at 10am, close to the visitor centre. These will be filled on a first come, first served basis and will fill up fast.
