WELCOME TO Windsor Safari Park

Site Logo From 1969 - 1992 Windsor Safari Park was a large and popular safari park situated just outside Windsor in the former grounds of 'Dodge Mansion' on St Leonards Hill. It was established by the Smart family of 'Billy Smart's Circus' fame, The Smart's had for a number of years used nearby Winkfield as their winter quarters, where a large brick built barn, with a number of outbuildings were used when not on tour to house the elephants, lions and tigers as well as many other circus animals and circus paraphernalia such as the multitude of brightly painted circus vehicles. But for one reason or another, the attractions of circus life faded for the Smart's and regular touring ceased in 1971 although very successful TV 'specials' from Windsor and elsewhere continued for a number of years thereafter from the specially erected Big Top. In 1986 an auction was held of remaining circus equipment at the Winkfield Winter Quarters and the site sold. The area is now occupied by HFC Bank. Sadly Windsor Safari Park closed its gates in 1992 and the area lay idle for several years until Legoland opened its doors in 1996 as its first theme park outside Denmark.

Many people still fondly remember the Windsor Safari Park days , either because they worked there or they visited there and this site is dedicated to those people.
