Garston is a village in Hertfordshire, England, more or less contiguous with Watford and now, despite retaining a fiercely strong local identity, is effectively, a suburb. It is within the Stanborough, Woodside, and Meriden wards of Watford Borough Council although a small number of its streets are within Hertsmere Borough Council.
Watford's main out-of-town leisure park, Woodside Leisure Park, is in Garston on the A405 Kingsway road. It features a Vue cinema, Hollywood Bowl 10-pin bowling lane, two restaurants -- Chiquito and Frankie & Benny's and A children's indoor activity zone.
Garston is home to the British Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, and the West Herts Crematorium at Garston is the principal facility for non-burial funerals in the West Hertfordshire area, serving Watford, St Albans and Hemel Hempstead.
The Building Research Establishment (BRE) is on Bucknalls Lane, Garston, just on the border with Bricket Wood.
Churches of several denominations serve the Garston area. All Saints serves the Anglican populace and Our Lady and St. Michael serves the Roman Catholic population.
