Owner description: Buchan Country Park is 170 acres of countryside on Crawley's doorstep and a Green Flag Award winning Country Park. Owned and managed by West Sussex County Council, it is a haven for quiet recreation and a variety of wildlife. The waters at Buchan are designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest for the variety of dragonfly species. The park is an ideal place for walking, wildlife watching or enjoying a picnic. We have a permanent orienteering course, 2 way-marked trails and sculpture dotted around the park. The Rangers and the Friends of Buchan Country Park run a variety of events throughout the year. Lose yourself amongst the birch trees, wander around the heath and linger in the meadow, Buchan Park has plenty to offer.

Was very busy and both car parks AND overfill car park were full so busy, but even though this was the case they organised a very well thought out Easter egg hunt event!
Small one for younger kids and a big one for older, which took about half an hour to walk around. Few extra games and served hot food and our favourite coffee guy.

I have been coming to Buchan Park since I was in Primary School when we would go on organised pond dipping adventures at the Nature Centre.

I have always loved this park and it was heart breaking when there was a massive fire here in the late 80's.

Nowadays we walk our two greyhounds here, it is fantastic for dog walkers and anyone who fancies a peaceful wander as it is not as busy as some other local parks.

There are lots of poo bins around the lake so there is no excuse not to pick up after your dogs...unfortunately some don't but that happens anywhere.

We live a short walk from here. We recently bought a puppy and it’s the most ideal place to take him! The lakes are stunning, there’s lots of friendly people with dogs and children. Anyone of any age would enjoy a wonder round!

Great place to walk the dogs, especially when everywhere else is so muddy! Plenty of poo bins so absolutely no excuse not to pick up after them, although sadly some still don't! You can venture off track into the woods if you fancy a longer walk but obviously it can be muddy once you do so. Overall a lovely place.
