Cassiobury Park is the principal public park in Watford, Hertfordshire, in England. It was created in 1909 from the purchase by Watford Borough Council of part of the estate of the Earls of Essex around Cassiobury House which was subsequently demolished in 1927. It comprises over 190 acres (77 ha) and extends from the A412 Rickmansworth Road in the east to the Grand Union Canal in the west, and lies to the south of the Watford suburb of Cassiobury, which was also created from the estate. The western part is a 62-acre (25.1 ha) Local Nature Reserve managed by the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust. The park hosts the free, weekly timed parkrun 5 km event every Saturday morning at 9 am, starting near the Shepherds Road entrance to the park.See Cassiobury Park and all Watford has to offer by arranging your trip with our Watford trip builder app.

It's so rare to find nice green spaces around London and especially as nice as this. It's a lovely park and perfect for a lazy Sunday hungover stroll. My friend is so fortunate to have this on his...

Was looking for a place to kill time my toddler son in Watford. Noticed this large park on Google maps, and tested. Was nicely surprised, it turned to be on of top UK parks by voting. It is really good, spacious, very green, has a wetlands reserve, rich playground, green area, walking paths, open air gym, fountains and shallow pools! Kids really have massive fun here. There public toilets, cafes and tap water stand. Everything is quite new, not much wear and tear. Enjoyed lock operations to move a boat upstream. Great experience! Parking is super busy there, arrive early, or choose a underground station nearby. More or less people start to leave only at 5 pm. It is a full day family time.
Came here for a walk and haven't been here for quite some time but it was really good. The parking is free for two hours. There is a splash park and playground for the children and a wonderful cafeteria for everyone. It was a really hot day but the walk through the woods and by the canal was really nice. Sorry I thought it inappropriate to take pictures of the splash park and playground as there were children present.
