Can you ‘Capture The View’ at Furzton Lake?

The Parks Trust have recently installed a new piece of public art at Furzton Lake, called Capture The View. It’s located near the café, where the framing structure allows viewers to look through and see the stunning scenery beyond.

Designed by Differentia, the beautifully crafted steel frame features laser-cut illustrations of wildlife that can be found at Furzton Lake such as mayflies, otters, kingfishers, and herons. There are fourteen different images within the artwork, so see if you can spot them all on your next visit.

The designer of the piece, Differentia, was chosen as the artist Stephen Pardue has previously crafted beautiful and creative outdoor pieces, often featuring wildlife. The Parks Trust wanted the artwork to celebrate local wildlife as well as engage residents with the challenge to spot the local wildlife within the design. The artwork also allows viewers to witness the changes in the landscape and habitats through different seasons, and to see the lake through a different perspective.

The Parks Trust, the charity caring for Milton Keynes parks, encourages visitors to create a digital timeline of Capture The View. To get involved simply take a photo, sketch or other interpretation of the view through the frame and share it on social media with #theparkstrust
