Cassiobury park is the place where I go every time when I feel to relax, to charge my batteries. I discovered 2 years ago when I moved in Watford and I get in love of that magnificent place. You have got almost everything here; green fresh air, wildlife, canals, walks, golf court, tennis court and a nice playground for kids with a small train, Whippendell Woods where has been filmed Star Wars.
Have a look below for more informations about the park, I’m not a good writer, so a just copy and place a link to Watford website. But the pictures are mine. If you want to use those picture, lease drop me a line.
A little bit about Cassiobury Park
Situated a short walk from the Town Centre is Cassiobury Park, a seven time Green Flag award winning park, a green oasis rich in natural beauty and steeped in heritage.
Green Flag award winner, for the ninth consecutive year!
Entrances to Cassiobury Park are located in Rickmansworth Road, Shepherds Road, Gade Avenue and Parkside Drive.
The park is Watford’s largest at approximately 77 hectares and situated just across the road from the Watford station on the Metropolitan Line, and is approximately a 20 minute walk from Watford Junction. There is a small car park just off Gade Avenue, and on street parking, although some restrictions do apply. Visitors to the park should consider using Gade or Avenue car parks, both of which are a short walk from Cassiobury, as spaces are limited at the park, and the small car park fills up very quickly. Some bus routes service the park and adjacent streets, both the 352 and W30 routes stop at the Watford Metropolitan station.
The history of Cassiobury Park
The name “Cassii” or “Cashio” is believed to be derived from a pre-Roman tribe that inhabited the area. This term, taken with the Saxon word “Bury” for a fortified settlement, is believed to be the reason for the origins of the name Cassiobury. Read more on Offcial Warford website Source: warford.gov.uk
