King George Recreation Ground

King George Recreation Ground

King George Recreation Ground has facilities including a sandpit and a children’s play area. New splash park due to open in June 2017!


Facilities include a Paddling Pool (under 8’s only), sandpit and a children’s play area. The splash park is currently being rebuilt and will be open later this year!  Access includes a total of seven pedestrian entrances into the park and there are two car parks (main car park in King George Avenue and smaller car park off Chiltern Avenue). There is a comprehensive programme of events held in the park every year. These include a funfair, teddy bears’ picnic, dog show, Easter egg hunt, music and more.

Opening Times

The park is open all year.

Check back for details of the new splash park opening!

The opening of Bushey’s new splash park has been delayed due to a technical fault.

During final testing today (Friday 26 May) of the new ‘tropical island’ splash park in King George Recreation Ground, engineers came across a problem with the park’s electrical circuit board.

Our contractors are working with our parks team to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and in the meantime, members of the public are being urged to keep checking our website and Facebook page for updates.

    The park is lovely with lots of open space. The playground itself is aimed at younger children, with a couple of small climbing frames, swings, including a set of baby swings and other bits and bobs. The sandpit is nice. It’s not that big but in an enclosed area between the playground and the paddling pool. Definitely take buckets and spades to get the most out of your visit! The paddling pool is gorgeous. It’s again, in an enclosed area with a lovely grassy area around it. It is only for under 8’s. The staff have introduced half hour slots in between sessions to clean it, so the pool itself should be clean. We certainly found it to be so. The pool is a similar area to that of the Splash Zone in Verulamium Park; much smaller than Cassiobury Park but perhaps therefore more manageable if you are looking for somewhere to go with 2 or more smaller children. The toilets are sited alongside the pool. The car park on King George Avenue is free, but I could imagine it getting full quite quickly on a hot day.
