Watford park back in action after storm damage
Facilities at Watford’s Cassiobury Park are now open again after storm damage caused havoc.
Cassiobury Park reopened on Friday after being closed the day before due to “safety hazards” caused by storms, however residents were told to visit the area ‘only if you have to’ as emergency tree works were underway.
However Watford Council said today that the affected park amenities were now reopened and available to use, including the playground, Beryl bikes, tennis courts and other sports facilities.
A spokesman said: “Thank you to everyone for their understanding and patience whilst our parks team and Veolia UK promptly assessed the tree damage in Cassiobury Park last week.
“The park reopened on Friday, but we have had to close paths and limit access in these areas to ensure people’s safety, which is our top priority. Safety works are still taking place, so please avoid these areas so emergency tree works can take place.
“All of the park facilities are now also reopen and available to use.
“The Cha Café, Daisy’s In The Park and Watford Miniature Railway are also open, so please help support your local businesses in the town after what has been a very difficult few months for them.”
Cassiobury Park is an amazing beauty spot with a lot of history behind it. It is a Green Flag award-winning beauty spot, which has been voted one of the top 10 parks in the UK.
