Brooklands Community Park is quite unique. The birthplace of British motor sport, where in 1907, wealthy landowner Hugh Locke King built the world’s first purpose-built circuit and hosted the first British Grand Prix. Impressive sections of the banked track remain intact here and on neighbouring Barnes Wallis Drive. For anyone interested in motor racing it’s an absolute must!
And if you’re interested in aviation or wartime history, you’ll know immediately, from parking instructions above, that aviation history has also been made here! Many Sopwith planes were developed and flown here, and Barnes Wallis designed his famous “bouncing” bomb, right here at Brooklands. Find out all about this amazing history in the neighbouring Brooklands Museum.
Our 'Greenspace on your doorstep' directory lists over 70 local woodlands, parks, meadows and riversides across Surrey, Hampshire & Berkshire. They've all been set aside by local authorities to give us places to get fresh air and exercise, with the family or the dog! All have free car parking, many with dedicated car parks. Most have dog poo bins and have been designed with dog-walking in mind.
