Everyone is invited to join the fun at Watford Borough Council’s May Day celebration in Cassiobury Park on Bank Holiday Monday from 1-3pm. 

There will be Morris dancers performing at the resplendent bandstand, restored and returned to its original home as part of a £6.6m regeneration of the historic beauty spot. You’ll also be able to make your own May crown or Green Man mask, for just £1 each, at this family-friendly festivity. 

The mixed-sex Wicket Brood Border Morris group and the Whitehorn Morris ladies group will be dancing for park visitors. 

If that wasn’t enough, the free-to-enter Cassiobury splash pools have now reopened for the spring and summer seasons. Why not walk down the hill after you’ve visited the bandstand and have a paddle? 

The pools, and the adjacent Cassiobury Park Hub, were opened last year after a £2.8m investment by Watford Borough Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund. The new facilities include 30 state-of-the-art splash pads, water jets and fountains, new changing rooms, toilets, and the enticing Daisy’s in the Park café and kiosk. There are also fully accessible Changing Places facilities – which include a shower, peninsular toilet and ceiling hoist – so everyone can enjoy the Hub and paddling pools.

The much-loved Cha Café, near the Shepherds Road entrance to the park, has also been extensively refurbished as a part of the park’s regeneration.
