Location Notes:

The official car park is at the bottom of Cassiobury Park Avenue / Gade Avenue (WD18 7LG). Go past the Watford Met Line station to the bottom of the hill then turn right into the car park. The car park can get very busy. Please note you will need to display a car parking ticket - it is free parking for up to 2hrs. The meeting point is at the furthest end of the car park, near the disabled parking bays and the Cassiobury Park information sign post. This is a lovely area of parkland, rivers, nature reserves, children's areas, and it links into the Whippendell Woods area as well (see below). There is a cafe. The Adventure walk may take you by parkland, canal, rivers, cross the golf course or circle Whippendell Woods finishing with a loop of Cassiobury Park. Routes from this venue may include paved pathways, woodland footpaths, tracks and open fields and gentle inclines.
