|Yet with all this activity going on, less than 10 minutes away by car from Central Milton Keynes you can find yourself next to one of our large lakes and be enjoying the peace and tranquility. Willen Lake is quite unique in as much as it caters for both water sport fans and nature lovers alike. The south lake is used for water skiing and windsurfing and the north lake is a haven for bird spotters because of the large island in the middle of the lake which attracts some very unusual birds.
Over on the far side of the north lake is the beautiful peace pagoda which was the first to be built in the western hemisphere and enshrines the sacred relics of Lord Buddha. The monks and nuns will give you a warm welcome to their temple nearby with its ornate Japanese garden.
I feel very privileged to be living in Milton Keynes.
