Lee Valley Regional Park is 26 miles long stretching from the Thames in the south to Ware in the north and in 2017 it is celebrated its 50th anniversary. The park borders the River Lea along the Lee Valley and is made up of a diverse mix of countryside, heritage sites, country parks, nature reserves and lakes and riverside trails. It also extends through the Olympic Park and contains leading sports centres including venues from the 2012 Olympics such as the Lee Valley Velopark and Lee Valley White Water Centre. Whilst Olympians still train at these venues, they are also open to the public with something on offer for every level of sporting ability.

The park extends into the Epping Forest District on its western border and parts of the park such as Fishers Green, River Lee Country Park cross into the district. At Fishers Green you will also find the new Lee Valley Wildlife Discovery Centre, overlooking Seventy Acres Lake. Find out more about this free wildlife hide and lookout tower here.

As well as great days out, Lee Valley also offers night life, entertainment, food and accommodation including camping and "glamping". The sports venues offer opportunities for cycling, golf, horse riding and boating as well as ice skating and rafting.

There is open access at all points along the park and car parks at various locations. Walking and cycle paths are well sign posted and there is always something new to discover around every corner.

The Lee Valley website has all the information you need plus suggestions for things to do and trails and maps to download.
