River Lee Country Park
By Lee Valley Regional Park
Stretching between Waltham Abbey in Essex and Broxbourne in Hertfordshire this 1,000 acre park has been transformed from old gravel pits to an inspiring country park for all the family to enjoy. A unique patchwork of lakes, waterways, green open spaces and countryside areas teem with wildlife and much of the area has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
On a walk through the beautiful CountryPark you can now see workers creating the White Water Canoe Centre between Waltham Cross and Waltham Abbey, being built for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
