Forest Park is a suburb of Bracknell, in Berkshire, England. It and Crown Wood are in Crown Wood ward and named after the Crown Estate of Swinley Forest.[1] It was built in the late 1980s as the town continued to expand.

The estate lies east of the A322 road and is approximately 1.2 miles (1.9 km) south-east of Bracknell town centre.

Facilities include a shopping centre, community centre [1], The Woodcutters public house and a Tesco Express. Savernake Pond offers walking and a play area [2].
