You can visit a number of fun destinations detailed below and really get to know this glorious park!

Ideal for a relaxing family day out. Go for a walk, bike ride and simply relax with a picnic. Visit the award winning open spaces at Amwell Nature Reserve (SG12 9SN), Stanstead Innings (SG12 8HL), Glen Faba and Dobbs Weir (CM19 5EX) and River Lee Country Park (EN10 6LX).

Visit Rye House Gatehouse (EN11 0EH), one of the finest medieval moated sites in Hertfordshire with a vibrant history including an unsuccessful attempt to assassinate King Charles II. Great stuff for kids studying history or after an extra-curricular project!

Lee Valley Boat Centre in Broxbourne (EN10 6LX) is the ideal location for having fun on the river. Explore the River Lee on electric boats, rowing boats or pedals - what a brilliant way of cooling down and relaxing on warmer days.
