View of the Arbour at Cow Pond with Lilies on the water.

Cow Pond

A short walk from The Savill Garden Visitor Centre lies Cow Pond, a serene ornamental lake created in the 1700s.

It’s a wonderful place to walk, take photographs or simply enjoy the outside air. 

Originally designed by the architect Henry Flitcroft, the Pond underwent extensive renovation in 2012 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s  Diamond Jubilee. 

A new Baroque-style footbridge was added along with a beautiful oak arbour. As with the roof of The Savill Garden Visitor Centre, both the arbour and the footbridge were expertly crafted from sustainable Windsor Estate oak.

Each season offers its own rewards, but summer visitors will be greeted by the colourful display of waterlilies.
