Great walking paths and beautiful on a sunny day. The swans on the lake are giant - probably from so many people feeding them! Really enjoyed this park and would definitely want to take a stroll through again.

This is a lovely park with lots to do in it. Water park for the children, outdoor gym, play area as well as the lake with lots of waterfowl. The new leisure centre is just inside the park with its swimming pool and gym and there is also the roman museum and roman remains. Well worth a visit.

Having lived near the park many years ago we have very happy memories of our daily walks to feed the ducks. The day we visited was rather dreary and wet, but we still managed to enjoy wlaking through the park from the Roman Museum to the Abbey. There is a café in the park, which we did not visit because...

A beautiful scenic park with a huge lake, lots of ducks & geese. A Childrens Water Play area plus a childrens play park - swings etc. A vintage pub at one corner of the park, a Waffle Restaurant at another corner and a Roman museum with fantastic displays. And a great view of the impressive St Albans Abbey.

This is a beautiful park almost in the centre of St Albans. It's a fantastic place to spend a cheap family day out, especially in the summer when the free splash park is open. There is also a children's play park, a stunning lake where you can feed the ducks and occasionally a small fair. And for those without children... More

Beautiful park in the middle of St Albans. It is well kept and safe to walk in. Lots of water birds on the lake in the middle of the park and dont forget to take a look at the remains of the Roman Wall. At the edge of the Park are a number of old pubs that are worth stopping... More

Our visit to this excellent museum was spoiled by the sheer number of schoolchildren who jostled us, shouted and ran about. The museum is small and was overwhelmed. We could not hear any of the video presentations, nor get near to many of the exhibits. Some teachers made efforts to control their charges, others did not. Museum staff tried their... More
