Update on Cassiobury car park improvement works: Alternative Parking Provision April 2019

We have received a letter from Watford Borough Council regarding parking provision in April. Here is the text of the letter:

“As you’ll be aware, to support the growing number of visitors to the park, Watford Borough Council is leading on a series of improvement works to the main visitor car park at Cassiobury Park.

The temporary overflow car park currently in place accommodates approximately 60 vehicles. However, we understand that the park becomes increasingly busy at this time of year as local schools break up for the Easter holidays. Therefore, over the school holiday period, from 8th – 22nd April, the temporary overflow car park will be supported by additional car parking at Watford Grammar School for Boys and Fullerians RFC, providing 80 and 40 spaces respectively. The council will also be encouraging visitors to walk, cycle or use town centre car parks or on-street parking (subject to restrictions).

Please see the table overleaf for further details on the alternative provision that has been arranged on each day in addition to the temporary overflow car park. Stewards will be stationed at Cassiobury Car Park to direct visitors to the alternative parking facilities throughout this period should it reach capacity.

The car park works are due to complete on Friday 3rd May ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

Yours faithfully,

Lauren Sharkey”
