Black Park

Black Park is a Country Park in Wexham, Buckinghamshire, England to the north of the A412 road between Slough and Iver Heath. It is managed by Buckinghamshire County Council. Covering 530 acres (214 ha) of woodland, heathland and grassland, some areas of which are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the park includes an avenue of mature pine trees, an orienteering course, a lake (dug in the 18th century as a reservoir for a local farmer) with a lakeside cafe. Some 165 acres (65 ha) were designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1992. The Country Parks team also manages with wildlife in mind, as the mixed woodland and grassland provides good numbers of bats, woodland birds and invertebrates. Dartford Warblers were known to be breeding here pre-2010 and other notable species on site include starfruit and hobbys.

Famous quotes containing the words park and/or black:

    Linnæus, setting out for Lapland, surveys his “comb” and “spare shirt,” “leathern breeches” and “gauze cap to keep off gnats,” with as much complacency as Bonaparte a park of artillery for the Russian campaign. The quiet bravery of the man is admirable.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If you’re born in America with a black skin, you’re born in prison, and the masses of black people in America today are beginning to regard our plight or predicament in this society as one of a prison inmate.
    Malcolm X (1925–1965)
