Refurbished Woodlands Café opens at the heart of Leavesden Country Park

09th September 2021


A very pleasant aroma has been wafting through Leavesden Country Park recently – it’s the smell of freshly baked woodland muffins, just one of a selection of tasty treats available at the newly refurbished Woodlands Café.


The café – which is run by the YMCA and reopened after the Covid lockdown in July – is holding a special event to mark its major refurbishment this Saturday (11 September). The bright and spacious café offers an expanded menu providing great quality food, ranging from Bakewell tarts and chocolate brownies to pain au chocolates, paninis and baked potatoes. There's also freshly ground coffee prepared by a team of baristas.  

The special event will feature a variety of activities throughout the day including performances from Music Gym and a photo competition with a chance to win a family ticket to Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

Three Rivers District Council will also be opening the HIVE between 12pm and 2pm with a drop-in explore, discover and learn session, as well as Play Rangers activity sessions from 10am to 2pm.

The event runs at the cafe between 10am and 2pm. For more information visit
