Cassiobury Park is located in Watford, to the north-west of London, and in 2017 it was voted as one of the top 10 parks in the UK. Half of the park is made up of woodlands known as the Whippendell Woods, and the area around the river Gade is a local nature reserve due to the wide variety of wildlife found here. The park offers paddling pools, playgrounds, a bandstand, cafés, and even a miniature railway on the weekends and school holidays. There are rooms to rent for meetings or events, as well as sports pitches (including a croquet pitch).
The park hosts lots of events for kids, and even offers a bouncy castle in the summer. It also offers group walks on Wednesday, runs on Saturdays, monthly group bike rides, and birdwatching on the first Wednesday of each month. There is also live music on the bandstand every Sunday afternoon. You are welcome to bring your dog, so long as it is kept on a leash and out of the river.
Just north of Watford is the Warner Brothers Studios, Leavesden. This studio is home to sets, props and costumes from the Harry Potter movies, and is one of the largest filmmaking facilities in the world. You can take a guided tour, or explore the facilities yourself.

Latest Cassiobury Park parking reviews
The process is nice and simple. Peace of mind too.ROGER
Excellent start to finish. Easy to book, easy to find and the park has many cameras so felt safe. Short walk to Watford train station so perfect for our needs.Sue
A pain to find because of the roadworks outside the hotel. Saying that good parking, staff in hotel very courtaeous, Easy to find to from M1 and 2 min walk from Watford Junction station. Easy access to Wembley Stadium. Value for money. Would use again. Next time would stay over instead of 4 hour drive home at midnight!!! But England in semi final. It’s coming homeAlison
Parking is so convenient and reasonably priced. The only problem is when you park in the mornings you can never get a space as the school parents use the carpark to do drop off. This doesn’t help when you need to get to work.Tara
Car park was a bit tricky to find as the address was Exchange Road but the postcode was Church Street according to my sat nav. Barrier went up when it recognised my reg. number but I didn’t get a ticket generated. Thought there would be a designated space but just had to drive up until I found one vacant. Glad it wasn’t a busy day! Car was safe and still there when we got back after three days. When we tried to leave, the system wouldn’t recognise our reg and we didn’t have a ticket to raise the barrier so we pressed the call button and an operator opened the gate for us. Overall happy with the service and will use again.Rob
