What3Words Explained

What3Words - Media

Sometimes street addresses aren't accurate enough to locate precise locations, which is we use What3Words to make it easier for visitors to navigate when they are enjoying the parks.

What3Words is a geocode system that's designed to identify any location in the world by dividing it into 3 metre squares and giving each unique square it's own name E.G. ///garden.park.nature. This makes identifying specific locations easier than ever before!

How can you use it?

If you want to report an issue in the parks and you're trying to identify the location, you can send us the exact location using What3Words.  This is  important for urgent enquiries as it allows us to get to the exact location in quick succession.

If you do have any enquires, or you'd like to report something to us, please don't hesitate to contact us.

How do we use it?

We use What3Words to identify specific locations in the 6000 acres that we care for and look after in Milton Keynes. These include identifying the location of a fallen tree, issues with litter, pinpointing meetings of our events, marking special points of interests and many more...
