Enjoy waterside walking in this delightful park in Uxbridge. The rivers Colne and Misbourne and the Grand Union Canal pass through the park. There is a variety of wildlife, including herons, kingfishers and dragonflies. You will also find the useful Colne Valley Park Visitor Centre and cafe in the park.
The route below starts and ends at the parking facility in the park but Denham rail station is less than a mile away so makes for a good access point.
The excellent Colne Valley Trail also passes through the park so you could pick up this waymarked trail to extend your walking.
