A visit to Black Park Country Park in Wexham

We went for a visit to Black Park Country Park in Wexham near Slough on a very wet, soggy January Saturday – the bonus for us was it was very quiet and the play area empty. Upon arrival we put the car registration into the car parking machine and went off on our adventure. 

Where did we go when we visited Black Park Country Park?

From the car park we walked passed Go Ape and the cafe near the car park and then walked with the lake on our right-hand side. We then picked up signs which took us around the lake to the play area.

One thing I thought was a good idea as you approached the play area and cafe was you entered the ‘Lakeside Family Zone’ where people are asked not to cycle and dogs must be on leads.

During the walk we spotted nature information boards which were full of interesting and informative facts.

Near to the play area was also a cafe and toilets.

After a stop at the play area for a play we then continued around the lake back to the car park. The walk was flat and our toddler made it all the way round walking but the play area was an added bonus about half the way round the walk. We also stopped a couple of times around Black Park Lake to have a look at the view.

We also spotted a number of wooden ladybirds around the lake high in the trees! They were fun to spot, so make sure you keep an eye out for them on your adventures at Black Park.

What is the Play Area like?

I was really impressed with the enclosed play area which was mainly wooden. There was a wide range of play equipment which was great for younger children as well as older children. There were climbing frames, slides, swings, vehicles, obstacle course, logs to climb all set in a woodland environment.

There were also picnic benches inside and outside the play area. There was a cafe, a kiosk (which was shut on the day we visited in early January) and toilets.
