Windsor Great Park: forests, deer and spectacular flowers

The Windsor Great Park Walk 2013
The Great Park is the only Royal Park managed by the Crown Estate Commissioners. It extends over some 14,000 acres. The public areas are mainly woodland or open grassland. A wide variety of forest trees thrive including beech, oak, birch and conifers.

Deer were kept here for many centuries but were taken away during the Second World War, when land was needed for food production. In 1979, at the suggestion of The Duke of Edinburgh, 1,000 acres of the park were enclosed and the deer reintroduced.

Virginia Water, a beautiful man-made lake covering 130 acres, dates back to 1753. Its name is thought to be taken from the State of Virginia in America, itself named after Queen Elizabeth.

To the east of the Great Park is The Savill Garden, where in May the rhododendrons and azaleas are at their best. Here too there is a lake, reflecting their colour all along its banks.

A Walk for Everyone

The MDS team at Virginia Water in 2012
There are three walks to choose from of 6, 10 or 16 kilometers. There will be staggered starts from 10am so you can all finish around 1pm. The walks are open to both individuals and families.

Our walk this year starts and finishes at Virginia Water Pavilion where we will all enjoy lunch together.

The registration is £15 per adult and £8 per child (under 2 free), fee includes lunch. The entry fee for this event goes to the AAT for the great work organising the walk.
