Millennium Green

Millennium Green is a small reserve in North Hykeham. It is a public space of approximately 41.28 acres with its predominant feature being a large lake. The lake is surrounded by a pathway which can accommodate buggies wheelchairs and cycles.

The green is bordered by residential housing and more lakes that are used for fishing and sailing. The area was acquired in 2000 for the enjoyment of visitors of all ages and abilities.

For ten years the site was managed by a group of trustees and volunteers. In April 2011, North Kesteven District Council was appointed trustees as agreed by Natural England.

As with many water bodies the natural occurence of various algae’s can be present in the lake at the Millennium Green. Many of thse algae’s including Blue Green Algae (Cyanobacteria) which are present in the lake, can be toxic and cause illness in humans and animals, it can be fatal to dogs so please do not enter the water, do not touch the scum either in the water or on the shore. If you see any signs of algae ‘blooming’ in the lake please contact Hill Holt Wood.

Please have consideration and respect for wildlife. Keep your dog under control and away from the lake. Please use the dog waste / litter bins provided. Please be respectful of other users. It’s against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control in a public place.
