Milton Keynes Parks Trust (formally known as The Parks Trust) is a British registered charity formed in 1992 by Milton Keynes Development Corporation to take over the public parks in Milton Keynes.

It was given a £20 million endowment, based mainly in various commercial and retail properties in the town, and a 999-year lease on around 5000 acres of open space. The Trust's chief executive is David Foster.[1]

Many of the parks feature significant public art such as the Concrete Cows.[2]


As well as formal parks, the Trust looks after 400-acres of lakes, verges of 80 miles of roads and three ancient woodlands.[3]
