The Silverstone Park Community

A thriving community

As part of the Silverstone Park community we are making it easier for everyone to attain a good work-life balance. We have a range of amenities for everyone to enjoy, including an on-site café, a gym and a variety of outside spaces. A social committee meets quarterly to discuss community events and organise the Park’s sports and social programme.
