Beale Park


Beale Park is an outdoor wildlife park about 40 mins drive from Marlow out past Reading. There is plenty enough to keep all ages of kids occupied for most of the day between the animals, play areas, large outdoor paddling pool, sand, train ride and other exhibits. It’s definitely worth the drive if you fancy a day out somewhere different.

I need to get some new pictures as the ones I have above don’t really do it justice – it’s worth looking at their website to see more

We were delighted to be joined by volunteers from Swan Support (@swan_support) for our Bird Feeding Friday earlier today.

This project is funded by the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and provides us with funding to feed farmland birds on our wider-estate through the winter. This ensures that they are healthy and fit for breeding in the spring and improves bio-diversity.

Good morning everyone. If you are planning to visit us today, please note, we have had to close off some of the gardens due to flooding.

We also discovered that the clue on the family trail about the collective noun of our Cabybara family blew away in the wind! We have relocated it to the fence line near to the Japanese bridge.

We look forward to welcoming you today.
