This park is as well used now as it was over 50 years ago. A credit to the city. Something for everyone.

Popular with joggers, parents with young kids, and anyone who just likes a park. Easy walking distance from the town centre but feels a world away. Big lake running through the middle which has plenty of birdlife to watch. Only gripe would be not enough bins as too much litter blowing into the lake, which doesn't help the wildlife.

Walked to after visiting cathedral. The open space well laid out, lakes, play area etc. felt envious that people who live local had such a beautiful place nearby with such amazing interesting things to see, Roman wall, Roman mosaic, and the Roman museum all within its 100 acres. Cafe in park worth a visit too. Play area ok for younger... More

We love walking through this park along the waterway. The water fowl are such fun to watch. Enchanting area.

Parked up at the Verulamium Museum car park, limited parking available on the day, but found a space, then into the Museum to pick up a map, although probably not needed, park is not huge, then off for a walk round the park, along the river, by the lakes, lots of people out on a lovely sunny day.

An urbane family stroll on Easter Monday, the sun shining, decent folk promenading, the buzz of intelligent conversation, not the slightest need for a wince at intrusive f'ing and blinding, wide open rolling expanses of green toppled off by a picture perfect St Albans cathedral. What's not to love. A trip to the park café more then satisfactory. The only... More

Visiting the area for the fist time we were looking for somewhere to spend a few hours before booking into our hotel, The park is one of the best I have visited with such a selection of things to do with Roman history lesson thrown in. I would love to visit again in the summer to spend more time there.... More

Absolutely love this park. Perfect for walking the dogs on and off the lead. The grounds are kept very nice and it feels a very safe haven place too. I have walked around the lake with my dog late at night and felt very safe. The views are fantastic too, especially of the gorgeous Cathedral.

This is a lovely place to stroll around with a pond upon which there is a profusion of water fowl and swans. St. Albans Cathedral is nearby as are several pubs and the ever-popular Waffle House. The park itself is home to The Inn on the Park, which is a great cafe. There is a large playground and ample parking... More
