The Countryside Code

Did you know Milton Keynes is an area that's covered by the Countryside Code? Therefore, when you visit our parks please:

Respect everyone

  • Be considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
  • Do not block access to gateways or driveways when parking
  • Be nice, say hello, share the space.
  • Slow down or stop for horses, walkers and livestock when driving or cycling. Always give them plenty of room.
  • Follow local signs and keep to marked paths unless wider access is available

Protect the environment

  • Take your litter home - leave no trace of your visit
  • Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
  • Always keep dogs under control and in sight
  • Dog poo - bag it and bin it - any public waste bin will do
  • Care for nature - do not cause damage or disturbance

Enjoy the outdoors

  • Follow advice and observe local signs e.g. water safety signage
  • Be responsible for your own safety and others in your care
  • Plan ahead and be prepared e.g. look out for flood warnings
