Canoeing at Milton Country Park!

Sport England Award

Recently Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust were successful in receiving a grant from Sport England for the purchase of equipment that will enable us to develop canoe opportunities at Milton Country Park.

We now have nine fantastic new 16ft Canadian canoes which will enable us to get more people out on the water and accessing this exciting sport!

We will be working with British Canoeing over the course of the year to develop opportunities and hope to have some taster sessions this year and more activities in place for 2018.  
See below for some canoe sessions coming up soon, more information to follow!

Parklife

Parklife is our popular free family event provided in association with South Cambridgeshire District Council.  This year you can try canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding taster sessions on the lake.  The watersports are really popular and places always fill quickly.  Half the available sessions will be bookable in advance.  Pre-booking will be open from 9am Thursday 1st June until 5pm Monday 19th June.  There is an admin fee of £5 per kayak/paddle board and £8 per canoe.  You can also book on the day from 10am at the marquee by the visitor centre.
