  • For a relatively small place this holds many treasures. You've got the guinea pig and bird cages, great views of the Thames and the nearby weir, and an assortment of play equipment. There are large numbers of benches overlooking the river and suitable toilet facilities. Can get busy during the weekends and the summer, especially the hot food and ice cream stalls, but peaceful and quiet during the week. Open from 7am each day and the best parking is a few minutes walk up the road. I recommend carrying on your walk further up the Thames towards Cookham too.
  • Really enjoyed our visit here, bit of a hidden gem. Good for children as a few little play areas and a small aviary and pet area.
  • Lovely island, great for an afternoon picnic with kids. Lots to see: the lock, the weir, the birds and guinea pigs, the squirrels, and the Thames. Drinks an icecream available. Playground by the kiosk.
  • Beautiful Park, with lovely facilities including Island piazza selling ice cream ice lollies, soft drinks, crisps, toasted sandwiches and pannienies amongst other snacks, duck food. With friendly staff food to your table. Water for dogs, toilet facilities, children's play area. You can walk to the wier. Or visit the avery, that also houses Guinea-pigs, perfect place for a picnic with parking available nearby opposite side of the road from boulters lock.
  • Favourite place in Maidenhead. If you want to go for a walk with friends or family, or even alone to sit and do some thinking, there's no better place. If you're in town you gotta check it out.
