Large areas of grounds and waterways to roam around the Cathedral. Parts of old Roman walls visible floor mosaic can also be visited.Lots of water birds and ducks to be seen and check out fish in some parts of the waterways. Great place to wander with children. Only draw back would be lack of toilet facilities at the other end... More

On my own, I managed to spend two hours in here, very heartbreaking leaving. Not heavy and heaving with people, lovely view fom the top of the hill, water birds are fun to watch this time of year. Water full of duck, geese, moor hen, coots and swans, many with youngsters. I wish I had time to look at the... More

an average with no much to offer, could have had a better landscape. It was a nice place to sit and relax after walking around the city. i saw alot of families enjoying themselves which added to the character of the place but a fountain or two would have made it look more beautiful

Went with my son here to help people learn to ride a bike. Was a shame we weren't allowed to cycle through the park as a group. Marvelous coffee shop , always very busy.

Stand at the Old London Gate, then see the amazing tiled floor displayed in the whitish concrete building, then stand outside and follow the line of the walls and you can start to imagine what Roman Verulamium (St Albans) would have been like. A lovely open space for a stroll with friends

A large park with the Abbey as its center piece,with many attractions including some Roman ruins.It is a rather large park with lots to do and the old town is a stones throw away.

It only costs £1 to walk 93 steps to great views of the city. I went with a party looking at the Wars of the Roses battles and we could see all the main points rom this vantage point.

Trail running around the whole park is about 5km and takes you through nice bushes and trees and shaded areas. There's lots of open ground in the middle where people are just relaxing or playing football or cricket. I never saw as... More

This park is very big, but even if we only so part of it we enjoyed it. There is a lovely lake in the middle from which you get lovely views of the cathedral , roman ruins, a cafeteria ...pity I had to rushback for my train.
