Nature, parks & gardens

If you simply want to wander and relax in wide open spaces, quiet woodlands, and waterside environments, the Lee Valley is for you.

If gardens and heritage are what you’re looking for, take a stroll in the beautiful Myddelton House Gardens or Waltham Abbey Gardens and the neighbouring Dragonfly Sanctuary, where history, flora and fauna mingle in fascinating ways.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Updated 25 March 2020

All our open spaces, nature reserves and parkland currently remain open. Govennment guidance on access to open spaces can be found here.

If visiting you must follow the latest Government advice on social distancing. While the park is a great place to walk, run or cycle, to enjoy nature and recharge, you must be responsible: do not meet up with friends, only visit with people you live with and only come once a day.
 
Being outside is good for you, but social distancing is essential for everyone’s health. If an area looks busy, go somewhere else.

Following Government guidance on Coronavirus COVID-19 we have temporarily closed many of our venues plus toilet blocks and bird hides within our open spaces (find out more here). We’re monitoring the situation closely and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Keep safe and stay well.
