Oxhey Activity Park
The development of Oxhey Activity Park is now underway to provide sport and leisure facilities. Watford Borough Council are developing the site to be used to provide sporting infrastructure in line with their aspiration that Watford should be a town in which participation in sport increases for everyone and there is a thriving and vibrant sporting infrastructure.
The development will provide a café with a riverside terrace, toilets with Changing Places services, a toddler and junior play area, improving walking and cycling routes through the park including disabled access, recreation facilities for skateboarding, scooters, blading, mountain bikes and BMX. It will also see a creation of wetland areas in the park and improvements to the River Colne corridor.

How was the project initiated?
Watford Borough Council undertook a number of consultation events over the last two years. In 2016 Watford Borough Council shared their initial concept for the area to the north of Oxhey Park. This set out how the site could be transformed. WBC received a tremendous amount of feedback from the local community on these plans and revised the plans accordingly. The following stakeholders and organisations have been consulted: Oxhey Park North Stakeholder Group, Hertfordshire Highways, The Environment Agency, The Friends of Oxhey Park and Ward Councillors for Oxhey and Central Wards.
Conditional Planning permission was granted in February 2018. The technical design stage was completed at the end of 2018, but we will continue to oversee and manage all planning related queries and conditions during the delivery stage.
