History

Home Park Public forms part of the Crown Estate, lying in the setting of Windsor Castle. The Park formed part of the private grounds of Windsor Castle until 1851, when Queen Victoria authorised and commanded that the land should be used for the recreation of the inhabitants of Windsor.

Today the 31 hectacre Park is managed by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and is used for sport, events and casual recreation. The Park is the main sports venue in Windsor, providing a base for clubs, including angling, archery, cricket, tennis and rugby. The Royal Windsor Horse Show and the Royal Windsor Dog Show both use the Park for their annual events and the Park is used for occasional ceremonial events such as state visits, royal weddings and other civil/military occasions.

The Park also provides an attractive setting for casual users, for children's play, dog walking or a stroll along the Thames Path which runs through the site.

Home Park was awarded Green Flag status in July 2012 for the fourth year in recognition of achieving the national standard for parks and green spaces in England & Wales.
