so much to explore

Garden view
Relax in nature or get active in the beautiful open spaces and superb facilities at Lee Valley Park.

The Lee Valley is a unique green space, stretching 26 miles north from Hackney and spanning 10,000 acres. There are the beautiful, historic gardens of Myddelton House and Waltham Abbey to stroll through, and wildlife havens such as Tottenham Marshes and WaterWorks Centre nature reserve. The Wildlife Discovery Centre is the perfect place to find out more about the habitats and species around you, and spot birds from its hide.

Numerous walking, running and cycling routes weave their way through the park, some of which take in the public artworks and sculptures set amongst the greenery.

The River Lee Country Park is also home to the Animal Adventure Park, a fun day out for all the family and less than 2 miles from Cheshunt Lakeside.
