Milton Creek Country Park is an oasis for wildlife, hidden from the world by a screen of industrial and residential development. Despite the proximity of human disturbance the 52ha mosaic of meadow, scrub and aquatic habitats is home to hundreds of animal species. Some of these are of national or international importance. The park is open at its northern end where Milton Creek flows out into the Swale. This corridor facilitates the migration of animal species in and out of the park as they move up and down the North Kent coast and provides additional roosting and feeding for the waders and wildfowl which   over winter  in the Swale and Medway estuary.

Milton Creek Country Park is Swale Borough Council's newest green space. Remediation of this former landfill site was possible with £2m of funding from the Homes and Communities Agency and £1/4m from KCC. Attractions include a community events space, natural play area, public toilets and fishing lake.

The free car park at Saffron Way (behind the Gregg's drive-through)  is now open 7am to 7pm (summer) and 7am to 4pm (winter).
