History

Braywick Park is the largest public open space in Maidenhead, covering 40 hectares to the south of the town centre. The Park has a fascinating history, with evidence of a roman road through the site, of ownership by Charles I, 18th and 19th century mansion houses on the site and more recently extensive mineral extraction, followed by landfill operations.

The Park is the main location for outdoor sports activities in the Maidenhead area, is a valuable nature conservation resource and houses Braywick Nature Centre, the focus for environmental education with the Borough.

With its 22 hectares of sports grounds and a range of quality sporting facilities, the park provides a base for a number of clubs including rugby, football, archery, target shooting and athletics. The Park also houses SportsAble (formerly known as WAMDSAD) the Sports Association for the Disabled, and a Golf Centre.

A 15 hectare Local Nature Reserve provides a range of habitats for local wildlife and opportunities for casual recreation. The Nature Reserve is also a valuable educational resource used by the Rangers at Braywick Nature Centre, for a wide range of events and activities they run for the public, schools and youth groups along with other visitors.

The access track adjacent to Stafferton Lodge was refurbished in spring 2010 to provide better access to vehicles and pedestrians. Further work took place in September 2011 to improve the accessibility to Braywick Park.
