Wedged between Slough and the M40 lies this beautiful country park set in 535 acres of woodland and heathland with something for everyone who likes to be outdoors. As well as unspoilt nature, including a nature reserve, Black Park offers extensive recreational areas and facilities.
Black Park is a great place for walking any time of the year, and ideal for a day out with friends and family when it's warm and sunny. The park is open from 8am to 5 pm throughout the year and longer during the summer months.
Extensive woodlands allow for good walking - anything from 30 minutes to several hours. Special habitat trails, such as the Alder Carr, inform visitors about predominant species. Many of the paths are suitable for walking and cycling, regardless of the weather.
Adjacent to the east side of Black Park is Pinewood Studios, although unfortunately, visitors are not allowed in. Still, there are some special cinematic trails which take you through the areas where scenes of films such as The Crying Game, Dracula and Goldfinger where shot.
