Cassiobury Park

Cassiobury was once the lands of the Abbey of St Albans, then later the estate of the Earl of Essex who commissioned beautiful gardens, tree planting and a deer park. In 1909 Watford Urban District Council began the purchase of land to create a stunning public park, now one of the most popular in the country.
