Dinosaur Trail at Herschel Park

Today we headed to Slough to have a go at the Dinosaur Trail at Herschel Park. We have a child who adores dinosaurs and it was a great opportunity to get outside on an adventure, despite the rain.

Active Slough have put up an Xplorer Dinosaur Trail at Herschel Park which is on throughout the summer and there are 15 dinosaurs cards hidden around the park. Each of the dinosaurs card has a dinosaur picture on it, a number and a dinosaur fact on it. Click here to access the map of where the dinosaurs are hiding.

There is a large pond in the center of the park, where most of the dinosaur cards can be found. We took food for the ducks so we could feed them as part of our visit to the park.

Whilst feeding the ducks a heron came down to the pond, it was amazing to see and added to the dinosaur adventure as we pretended it was a pterodactyl. The dinosaurs cards are predominantly attached to the trees, quite high up, so I did have to lift our children up to view them. However we did find a diplodocus on the bridge over the pond.

If you would like to extend your time at the park there is also The Herschel Park Tree Trail which you could follow as well. There were some great wooden sculptures around the park and lots of wildlife to enjoy.

Where to park and what facilities are at the park?

There is a free car park at Herschel Park. It is not huge, we went early in the morning and there were a couple of spaces left in the car park. The walk was buggy and dog friendly. There were well managed paths around the park which have good access. We did not see any toilets or food facilities at the park although on the tree trail map there is a kiosk and disabled toilet. Unfortunately there was quite a lot of litter around the park, so please help by taking yours home.
