Black Park covers over 500 acres of woodland and heathland. There are over 10 miles of well surfaced track, a large lake, cafe and woodland adventure play area. There is also a Go Ape on site and lots of organised activities running in the park.
We find the park great for our 1yr old and 4yr old. From the car park the surfaced tracks make an ideal bike or scooter ride around the lake to the adventure play area. The cafe does a really nice and reasonably priced lunch, either sitting inside or outside on the large veranda if the weather is nice. The natural woodland style adventure play area is great for toddlers as well as older kids. The woodland setting is particularly good for boys who are into sticks!
Black Park opens at 8am daily but closing times vary depending on the seasons. Check the park website for up to date information.
