Put Spring in your step!

Put Spring in your step with a walk in the park! Across our network area we are blessed with some fantastic outdoor spaces that everyone can enjoy. Residents near our Ashford and Feltham offices enjoy access to award winning Bedfont Lakes Country Park with 180 acres of lakes, woodlands and rolling meadow for dog walking and outdoor leisure pursuits whilst Shortwood Common (between Ashford and Staines) contains a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

In the 1930s, gravel pits were an eyesore near Staines and Wraysbury but have become beautiful lakes where open water swimming sailing, fishing, diving and bird- watching can be enjoyed throughout the year. Reservoirs near Staines and Ashford also offer open spaces for wildlife, sports and leisure activities. Queen Mary Reservoir is popular for sailing and windsurfing all year round on 700 acres of open water.

Windsor Great Park is home to Savill Gardens, Virginia Water and Valley Gardens and is open all year round to visitors. There are stunning walks which encompass the lake at Virginia Water, a deer park, Chinese pagoda, royal lodges, Roman ruins and even a North American totem pole.

Public parks and play areas abound in the Slough area. Herschel Park, a 5 minute stroll from the High Street in Slough, is a delightful hidden gem, an award winning park which has been restored with lottery funding and local volunteer support for a range of leisure activities for local residents and visitors.

Nearby Black Park and Burnham Beeches are often used by film studios as locations due to their outstanding natural beauty. Robin Hood, Casino Royale and Harry Potter are among the films that have been shot here. Black Park has 10 miles of paths and 535 acres of woods and open heathland to explore.

Lowndes Park in Chesham spans some 36 acres. The lower park has play areas, a multi-sports court, skateboard park, and Skottowes pond. Free open-air concerts are often staged here. The upper park has spectacular views across the town, superb walking routes and habitats for local wildlife.

The Chilterns area as a whole is famous for its picturesque scenery and quintessentially English villages such as Chalfont St Giles with lots to explore. Much of the Chilterns was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1965 and are particularly beautiful when the bluebells start to bloom. There are so many places to visit across the Frost network area offering a wide range of outdoor leisure options. For more information about what our local areas have to offer, please see our area guides or contact your local Frost office.
