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
Really great to be so close to the hospital, and a better price than hospital parking costs so I was happy! It was a little tight trying to get out as more cars had parked on the road by the evening, however I own a T5 van so probably have less of a turning circle! Thanks thoughAmy

It’s very good, easy and safetyLoredana
Was a bit unsure if I at the correct car park as we didn't get a name. Had to get a ticket on the way in but on the way out the camera recognised my number plate and the barrier let us out. A lot cheaper than paying on the dayGary
