On the south eastern side of the city of Portsmouth, Milton still retains somewhat of a village ambience and can boast two large parks; Milton Park and Bransbury Park. Milton Park occupies land previously part of Milton Farm, which was owned by the Goldsmith family, after whom Goldsmith Avenue is named. Some members of the Goldsmith family are buried just across the road from the park in St James churchyard. One of the original farm buildings remains; the thatched barn, which has been extended and is now the home of the 'Portsmouth Players' amateur dramatic society. Bransbury Park, at the southern end of Milton, offers squash courts and netball pitches as well as several football pitches for local Sunday League clubs and schools football.
The parade of shops in Milton Road opposite Bransbury Park is popularly known as "Milton Market"; the local sub post office name is officially "Milton Market".
