I was thrilled to hear of the nomination. We are incredibly proud of the beautiful green spaces created here in Milton Keynes. The redway cycle paths, the canals, the management of the lakes and the surrounding areas are second to none. To witness the sheer numbers of people appreciating the outdoor facilities is simply a clear testament to how much people value and enjoy our very special landscape.
