Owned and managed by Hertfordshire County Council, the park was created on green belt land in 1971 as an area for quiet countryside recreation. Its 175 acres of woodland, parkland and open water provide the perfect setting for a great day out for everyone.

School and Organised Visits - information and charges
School and Group visits by coach, bus or minibus are by appointment only in order to accommodate high usage of the Park particularly in the summer term.
There is plenty to do and see at the Park such as the Rare Breeds Farm which includes pigs, goats and sheep. There is also Winnie the Pooh´s 100 Aker Wood, Nature Trails and the lake and its waterfowl.
We also have joint visits with Three Valleys Water´s Environmental Centre at Clay Lane in Bushey.
* Coach, Bus and minibus visits - £1 per child or visitor (teachers and supervisors are free)
* Classroom Hire including adjacent toilets, washing facilities and cloakroom (holds 30 children) - £25 for the day. Please note that due to high demand for the use of our classroom and taking into account that we can only hire it to one school per day, if the classroom is not used, for any reason, the £25.00 charge is still applicable.
All fees are payable on the day by cash or cheque payable to Hertfordshire County Council
