About the Poplar Plantation
This scenic area of parkland is great for a short stroll amongst the trees or you can incorporate it into a longer walking, running or cycling route through Willen Lake or Ouzel Valley Park. The area is well signposted so you can continue to explore Milton Keynes' vast green spaces easily. It is also a great location for dog walking.
We recommend visiting in autumn to enjoy the carpet of leaves that cover the ground towards the end of the year.
Please take care and avoid this area in high winds as branches can fall off onto the ground below.
There is a dedicated car park off Woodall Close in Middleton. Nearest postcode: MK10 9JZ. You can walk from here into the Plantation.
The closest public toilets and refreshments are at Willen Lake South.
Good if accessed from the car park; the leisure routes are hard surfaces.
