The Weald Country Park is a 200 hectare landscape park in South Weald in the district of Brentwood in the English county of Essex . It is on the northeastern edge of Greater London . The park has existed for more than 700 years, the current landscaping dates back to the 18th century.

It was planned to host the mountain bike competitions here during the 2012 Summer Olympics . The UCI , however, pushed through Hadleigh Farm as the new venue, as the terrain there is more technically demanding and selective.

The Weald Brook, which merges into the Ingrebourne River , is created in South Weald Lake in Weald County Park.
