Travel information and Directions to Cassiobury Park

By Foot
From Watford town centre: From the top of the High Street (where the pond is) follow Rickmansworth Road (A412) past the Town Hall, Watford Colosseum and The Peace Hospice.

By Bike
A road-free cycle route links the town centre to the park (same directions as above). The Ebury Way cycle and footpath between Rickmansworth and Watford is within 2km of the park and can be reached by cycling down the old Ascot Road, crossing Rickmansworth Road and then along Gade Avenue. The Grand Union Canal which runs along the western border of the park provides a link to Croxley and Rickmansworth in the south and North Watford, Abbots Langley and Kings Langley to the north.

By Car
There is one official car park for Cassiobury Park at the end of Gade Avenue near the bottom of Cassiobury Park Avenue (WD18 7LG is the nearest postcode).

The car park is signposted from the centre of town and Rickmansworth Road with brown tourist information signs. Parking is free but limited, with 78 spaces plus six more reserved for blue badge holders. In the summer an extension is opened to enlarge the carpark, however on good weather weekends this will often be full.

The car park opens at 6am and closes at 9pm.

Between 2 and 4pm on sunny weekends the Car Park is likely to be full. The roads around the park are also likely to be very busy with parked cars and people looking to find somewhere to park so it is suggested you park some distance away to avoid getting stuck in an uncomfortably hot traffic jam.  Signs suggest the town centre car parks, which charge to use them, as alternatives. The nearest of these to Cassiobury Park are the Town Hall car park (closed Mon-Fri until 4pm), Avenue car park, and Gade car park (NB this is not the one in Gade Avenue). Watford car parks

On-street parking to the north and south of the park is free but restrictions apply.

Coaches and other vehicles above 2.1m are prevented from entering the car park by a barrier across the entrance (installed November 2014). There is often space to temporarily stop a coach to unload passengers close to the car park entrance on Gade Avenue or at the bottom of Cassiobury Park Avenue.

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.
