Howe Park Wood North

In medieval times Howe Park would have been a vital local source of wood for the villagers of nearby Tattenhoe.

A bit about us

When Milton Keynes Development Corporation bought the wood in 1968 it was a dark, wet, impenetrable thicket. The shady conditions prevented the growth of woodland flowers and therefore impeded the insects, birds and other wildlife which depend on them. Active management of the wood has transformed that picture and these days Howe Park Wood is one of the city’s jewels, a tranquil oasis, humming with wildlife and colour. 

We completed our new environmental education and visitor centre at Howe Park Wood in December 2014. 

Car parking

The main car park at the wood’s main entrance, off the H7, opposite the Westcroft Centre.


No public toilets are available but the café does have some available for customers.

Disabled access 

There are both hard surface footpaths suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs and grass and woodchip paths for those who prefer to venture deeper into the wood.
