Only 3km from the CBD, Albert Park is popular for a range of activities like dog walking, jogging, cycling, sailing and rowing. Apart from the lake itself, other attractions include ovals, playgrounds, restaurants and a 5km walking and running track. Sporting facilities include a golf driving range, gymnasium and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC). Enjoy a barbecue or picnic with the family. Hire a boat and explore the lake. Walk, cycle or jog around the track, past green lawns and playing fields. Catching the tram is a great way to get to Albert Park. All trams that travel along St Kilda Road stop within easy walking distance of the park and the 96, 12 and 112 trams run past the park from the Melbourne CBD to St Kilda. Limited parking is available for park users within Albert Park (parking fees apply).

Great place for a wander around

Went here as the Taste of Melbourne was on. Easy to get to on a tram. Weather was fantastic,so walking around the venue and then the park itself was nice. Good place for families.

I attempted to walk around this park a couple of weeks prior to the late March 2017 Australian Grand Prix. Instead of a pleasant walk enjoying the native grasses, lake, black swans, cygnets and ducks, I was presented with metre after metre of ugly fencing as well as areas of temporary workers' huts - quite large and obtrusive - and...

Something every petrol head has to do in Melbourne. Only a couple of weeks before the race so the fences were all up and the gravel was out ready. An experience not to miss. Yes it's a slow cruise round due to harsh speed limits and cops to back them up but there's people on bikes and others walking the... More

On a cruise we visited the area and took a shuttle bus into town. Its a good walk, but it all looked so familiar from the television coverage, as it was mid-February, preparations were being made for the first F1 race of the year (26th of March) and ,for me, it was marvelous to walk the track. Even if you... More

It's a pretty big area with a huge lake in the middle. Long walk round with plenty of local wildlife to see. Kids play parks, fishing options, people running / jogging, dog walking. Well worth a visit for a bit of tranquility just a short distance away from the main city.

Stopped by the Apex playground near the bowls club on the western side of the park - just great for kids around the 4-7 age group. Lots of different places to explore and thankfully for a hot summer day, lots of shade for parents watching on.
