Plan ahead if you’re visiting Cassiobury Park over the Easter bank holiday weekend

With warm sunny weather forecast for the whole of Easter weekend, please plan ahead if you are coming to Cassiobury Park.

Published: Monday, 1st April 2019

To support the growing number of visitors to the park – estimated at 2million+ per annum – work to increase the capacity of the carpark is now in its final phase which means the main carpark is out of action but the overflow car park (with limited spaces) will be open all weekend, 19 - 22 April.

In addition, Watford Borough Council has arranged alternative car parking at Fullerians Rugby Club for the whole weekend. Stewards will be at both sites to assist with any enquires.

Other nearby car parks are: The Gade in Rosslyn Road (WD17 1PL), The Avenue in Hempstead Road (WD17 4NR), the Town Hall carpark (WD17 3EX) available weekends and bank holidays only.

The council would like to urge 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 (please note there are no trains to and from Euston station from 19 to 22 April). 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.

The improved Cassiobury carpark when complete (3 May) will provide increased capacity from 88 to 214 permanent spaces, more blue badge spaces from 6 to 12 and new digital screens to highlight the number of available spaces.
