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).

Big open spaces, plenty of off leash areas for the dog and not many people about. Best local park except for when the Grand Prix is on, and locals are barred for weeks.

Albert park is a beautiful spot and you can take part in various activities there. It is great for a picnic or just chilling out.

This is an awesome place to pack a picnic and take the kids to roam around. Nice wide open space to enjoy the day, away from the 4 walls at home. This is a thumbs up for me 👍👍👍

Only a stone's throw from the Melbourne C.B.D. this magnificent park and lake is a real gem. It provides a green space with water with great view of the city skyline. Even on a blustery winter's day it was a pleasant place to stroll.

Albert Park is a combination grassy park, large lake, community project (children's play areas), place to see wildlife (great birding for a foreigner), and F1 racetrack at certain times of year! It's free to walk through and quite large, and there is a small restaurant...More

Wonderful Park with great views around the lake. Good for walking running and picnic. Few golf holes and can watch the sailing and rowing. Easy to get to from the city on the St Kilda tram. Home to the Australian F1 which is well worth...More

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...More

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.

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...More

Hi Lou C, There's lots of open space at Albert Park; great for a casual game of football, frisbee, jogging or a picnic. Playing on the fields shouldn't be an issue, as long as there's no games on! The Visitor Guide (Park... More
