This is a real shame . The park isn't being looked after . There's a lot of pooh and the playgrounds need attention and bringing up to scratch . It's such a lovely space . The council need to get on with it .

Such a cute park, a lovely lake and interesting ruins all around. Perfect place for a picnic and general day out. The crazy golf was a great laugh, quite small but still fun, and such an interesting museum there too! A beautiful walk up the orchard by the Abbey into the town as well.

This park has something for everyone. On a sunny day we enjoy having a picnic on the grass then cooling off in the splash park. When we visited last there was a small funfair next to the playground. There is also crazy golf, beach volleyball, football and basketball as well as an outdoor gym to keep you busy. We love... More

You could walk around Verulamium Park for hours if you wanted to. Lovely lake, and a small museum on the hill showing archaeological diggings of beautiful stonework and tiles on the floor of a Roman house.

Beautiful place for a stroll or picnic. Visited the park to see the Roman ruins. The museum is on the property and you can also walk the Abbey.

I brought my dog over here recently and it's a great place for her. The stream provides endless fun and games, while the playing fields offer plenty of space for running around. It's wide and open, and a fair distance from the road so I felt very safe. Elsewhere in the park there's the pond/reservoir and an outdoor gym and... More

On the site of a Roman settlement the park has lots of Roman ruins and old wall and superb example of a Roman hypocaust. There is an excellent cafe and the museum is only a short walk from the car park. The lake is home to lots of wildfowl and Herons nest on the island in the middle of the... More

I love this park its great for little ones to ride their bikes round the lake, shoot some basket ball hoops or go the the cafe in the centre. Lovely place to have a family picnic and meet up with friends. Large enough for rounders and football with access to Westminster lodge.

The park is simply lovely - with lots to do for all age groups. highly recommended. The only thing that could be improved is the lake - please get rid of the awful concrete edging and improve the water quality by planting reeds and other aquatic plants - the stagnant water is rather offputting.
