Jennett's Park is a suburb of Bracknell in the English county of Berkshire. It is a recent development with the first residents moving in in 2007.[1] It is in Great Hollands North ward of Bracknell Forest Council.[2]

The estate lies approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south west of the town centre, to the south of the A329 road close to its junction with the A329(M) and near Great Hollands and Amen Corner. A new roundabout was built on the A329 for access.[3]

At the heart of the development, in Tawny Owl Square, is Jennett's Park Church of England Primary School[4] as well as a Community Centre[5] – both were officially opened in October 2011. The Community Centre is owned by the local authority (Bracknell Forest) but is leased to and managed by Jennett's Park Community Association.[6] The centre has one of the largest halls in the local area.[7] The former Peacock Farm on Peacock Lane has been redeveloped into a public house and restaurant, The Peacock Farm.[8] All the streets in the estate are named after birds to reflect this heritage.

In October 2014 local councillor Michael Gbadebo announced that contracts had been exchanged between Redrow Homes and BBS Kirkby for the retail unit at Jennett’s Park [9] and in turn they have an agreement with Morrison’s to operate the store once it has been built
