The Colne Valley Park covers over 40 square miles and is the first real taste of countryside to the west of London. The Valley hosts a mosaic of farmland, woodland and water with 200 miles of river and canal and over 60 lakes. It is also a living, working environment, providing employment and homes for many people as well as being a haven for wildlife.  Click here for our latest CVP Newsletter

Site images from the past

Discover the history of the park and see how it has changed with this fascinating project based on a comprehensive photographic record from the 1980's. You too can join the photographers who are re-taking all the photos to provide a record of change in the park.

Visitor Centre

The Colne Valley Park Visitor Centre is at the heart of the Colne Valley Park at Denham Country Park. The car park is open between 8.30am - 6pm (8.30am - 7pm in summer). Our new adventure playground is open all day, every day and our recently refurbished cafe is open 10.30am - 5pm (10.30 - 3.30 in winter). 

The Colne Valley Park Visitor Centre is a great place to start or finish some lovely walks, with an easy access 1 mile stroll that takes you past three rivers, a canal, a meadow and through a wood. Take a pencil and paper to enjoy our brass rubbing trail or purchase an orienteering map (child or adult), scavenger hunt pack or snapshot treasure hunt sheet from the Visitor Centre.
