Black Park Country Park
With over 10 miles of well signed cycling and walking tracks, Black Park is the ideal place for a great day out in the country. Set in 535 acres of woodland and heathland, you will find lakes, picnic areas, cafes and a Go Ape Tree top adventure course. The park is located in Wexham, just a few miles east of Slough.
The route below begins at the car park next to the lake and takes you to the famous Pinewood studios where many blockbuster films have been produced. You continue through the park to Upton Wood where you will circle the lake before returning to the finish point back at the car park.
The route is suitable for both cyclists and walkers but for cyclists there is also the Beeches cycleway. This 12 mile, signposted route joins Black Park, Stoke Common, Burnham Beeches and Dorney Lake allowing you to extend your ride if you wish. For walkers you may also like to try the Beeches way walk which passes through Black Park. Also of interest is the nearby Langley Park Country Park which lies just to the south of Black Park.

There are two nice cafes in the park where you can enjoy some refreshments after your exercise. The San Remo Cafe is just to the south of the lake. There's a great outdoor seating area with views over the water here.
As you'd expect the miles of wooded trails are excellent for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on your visit. There are also dog water areas in the park.
