Pedalos large.jpg
30 August 2018


Willen Lake is Milton Keynes’ most popular park, and this is no surprise when you consider how much there is to do there, all year round! One of our favourite ways to enjoy the Lake is by water – did you know that we have a Boat Hire Centre onsite that has a whole range of equipment available to hire?

Some of our highlights include….

Our themed pedalos, available in  flamingo, car, dragon and swan designs,  are a great way to get the whole family out on the water. They have been a big hit this summer with the new additions of our flamingo and car fleets.

We also offer turbo paddlers suitable for your little ones, all they have to do is turn the handles to spin the double paddlers to make them move. They are a great way for smaller children to have some freedom whilst safely inside one of our paddlers.  Check out our YouTube video to see our pedalos and turbo paddlers in action.

Or why not take part in the celebrity craze and try out stand up paddleboarding? These are suitable for one person and are a great test of balance and coordination. They can be hired from us for a half hour or hour long session. See our latest stand up paddleboarding video to see them for yourself.

Want to do something with a slightly larger group? We offer Katakanus; purpose-built catamaran-canoes that can take up to six people with a maximum of four adults.  They are the perfect activity for a larger group.

The great news is that none of our equipment needs to be pre-booked so please just turn up on the day and head to our Watersports and Boat Hire Centre to make your booking. The Centre is open from 11am to 5pm Wednesday to Sunday, until the end of September.
