Hidden between the M4 and Maidenhead town centre is the lovely Braywick Nature Reserve and playground. A short walk of the area can be found in Kiddiwalks in Berkshire. It gives a great introduction to the reserve, taking you through all the best the park has to offer. On the map you will see “V” for visitors’ centre. This is the best place to park. You will find the play park near where the running track is marked. The old stables house the visitors’ centre with displays and exhibitions about local wildlife and information about local history.
There is so much wildlife the children will love to encounter in the reserve. From the lovable rabbits and red kites to the less obvious pond life. There are lots of events during the summer to help you make the most of your visit. Nature walks will help you discover the huge variety of bugs, beetles and butterflies in the grasses and wetland. The Go Wild holiday club includes activities such as pond dipping and mini-beast hunts.
Check the Braywick Nature Reserve Website for details of all this summer’s events.
