The local charity will be hosting an online talk about the various water bodies throughout Milton Keynes next Thursday (19/07).
The Park Trust is a local independent charity that cares for over 6,000 acres of parkland and green space in Milton Keynes. This includes the river valleys, ancient woodlands, lakesides, parks and landscaped areas alongside the main roads that represent 25% of the city.
They have recently announced that they will be hosting an online talk about bodies of water such as the iconic Willen and Furzton Lakes.
Giving more details about the event a spokesperson said: "Have you ever wondered why Milton Keynes experiences very little residential flooding compared to other parts of the UK despite the prevalence of waterways across the city?
"In this talk you will find out about the intricate system of balancing lakes and urban drainage systems that help protect MK.
"There will also be an opportunity to discover some of the problems that these bodies of water can bring and how The Parks Trust surveys for these."
