A selection of walk around the theme of parks within the county
Hatfield Park is arguably the jewel in the crown when it comes to green spaces in the county of Hertfordshire. This walk takes in a section of the park after following the Lea Valley Walk.
Formerly part of the Panshanger Estate, the area has been used for quarrying but now is transitioning into a a country park and nature reserve.
A few years ago, the Countryside Management Service and East Herts Council joined forces to link together Thorley Wedge, Southern Country Park, Northern Parkland, Bishop's Park and The Firs.
An orchard, meadow, woods, café, walled garden and even an amphitheatre, Shenley Park near Radlett, has 45 acres to explore.
Not really a park, but a mixture of farmland and woodland that lies just north of Stevenage on the the route of the Hertfordshire Way.
All the routes were correct at the time of publication, over time access to certain parts of the walk may be subject to change.
