Watford Word Trail 

A fun way to learn, test your knowledge of Watford history and enjoy walks in some of the town’s award-winning green and open spaces. This leaflet has been put together to help guide you on a journey through Watford. Through visiting the parks and reading the clues you can collect letters to work out a word from Watford’s past all whilst enjoying the outside spaces.

This leaflet is free, but we do encourage a donation to our Watford Helps campaign which is set up to help local charities. You can donate by texting WATFORD to 70201 (£1), 70331 (£3), 70970 (£3) and 70191 (£10). You can find out more about Watford Helps here or Donate directly here. 

Please do also maintain social distancing when visiting the parks, wash your hands regularly and wear a mask when you can't avoid others.
