We’re facing another boiling Bank Holiday weekend, with temperatures are forecast to rise as high as 30oC in Watford – so please plan ahead if you’re coming to Cassiobury Park.
Watford Borough Council is urging people to ditch their cars and either cycle or take public transport to the park. The best way to reach the historic beauty spot – voted one of Britain’s top 10 parks – is via Watford Underground Station, serving the Metropolitan line, which is just a two-minute walk from the park. Watford Junction and Watford High Street railway stations are a 20-minute walk away. Cycling is also a great option and bicycle racks can be found at the Cassiobury Park Hub near the paddling pools entrance and by The Cha Café next to the water fountain.
If you are driving, the best nearby car parks are: The Gade in Rosslyn Road (WD17 1PL) and The Avenue in Hempstead Road (WD17 4NR). There’s also the Town Hall car park in Peace Prospect (WD17 3EX) – available on weekends and Bank Holidays, but not during office hours.
Peter Taylor, Elected Mayor of Watford, said: “Cassiobury Park is one of the UK’s top 10 parks. We’re over the moon that it’s become such a focal meeting place for the Watford community and for visitors from outside of Watford. Cassiobury is absolutely stunning and so can get very busy. Please plan your journey, so that you can spend as much time as possible in the park, rather than stuck in your car. We hope you enjoy your visit.”
