What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 3.5km walk for a gentle stroll around Cassiobury Park, famous for its tree lined avenues. The short route is around tarmac paths so suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs.  The longer 9km walk will take you across into the ancient Whippendell Woods, home to diverse habitats. As we explore woodland paths with some hills, this is not suitable for wheelchairs. Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change. 

All routes will start and finish at the field between the children's play pools and the Gade Avenue entrance, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass.  Amongst the excitement, take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.

How to get there

There is no event parking available at Cassiobury Park and we advise using local car parks and public transport where possible. The event start area is located a few minutes walk from Watford Metropolitan line tube station, and 2.5km from Watford Junction overground station. There are also various bus routes that service the park.

To keep Watford environmentally friendly please choose the most sustainable method of transport and car share where possible.

Registration will close Thursday 13th September 2018 and you will not be able to register at the event. So sign up now and get your team members to do so too!
