Denham Country Park is an area of meadow and woodland situated between the Grand Union Canal, the River Misbourne and the River Colne. Hubby grew up nearby and enjoyed cycling along the canal and exploring the country park as a child but despite us living a short distance away, I’ve never got around to exploring it myself. Country Kids however, has prompted me to get out and explore the great outdoors more with my children, and find new places to visit.
We parked by the Visitors Centre and took a walk through Misbourne Meadow making our way towards the Grand Union Canal. Jessica enjoyed splashing in lots of very muddy puddles and as it was a very popular place with dog walkers, she got to see lots of dogs which she was very excited about. Sophie enjoyed watching the world go by from the buggy (it was a little too uneven underfoot for her as she is still a bit wobbly on her feet).
We made our way down to Denham Deep Lock which is 11 feet deep and is the deepest lock on the Grand Union canal and had a little bit of a walk along the canal before heading back to the visitor’s centre for some lunch before exploring the area near the River Misbourne. Jessica was fascinated by the Roman well. She was disappointed though that we didn’t see any ducks on the river as she wanted to feed them, but we did spot some squirrels in the woods instead which made up for the lack of ducks.
