Description A picturesque and manageable walk for all the family exploring the beautiful park that is Cassiobury. The walk follows paths and walk ways that are suitable for buggies and wheelchairs and meanders past a miniature rail way, a winding stream and a mixture of woodland and open green spaces. Before the walks starts there will be a fun for all warm up led by an instructor and there will be children’s entertainment on the day for the little ones and plenty of things to see and do before, during and after the walk.
After the welcome speech and a warm-up for all the walkers, the 3 mile walk begins. All are welcome, the more the merrier!!

The 352 and W30 services stop outside Watford Metropolitan line station which is a two minute walk from the park. By tube: Cassiobury Park is a 2 minute walk from the Watford Metropolitan line station on the London Underground network. Exit the station onto Cassiobury Park Avenue and turn right, after about 150 metres turn left onto Shepherds Road – the park is straight ahead of you.
