Overview

Verulamium Park is a public park in the City of St Albans, Hertfordshire. Along with being a wide open area for recreational purposes, the park includes all that is left of a Roman settlement from which the park takes it's name. The large amount of history on view in the park has resulted in a museum dedicated to the Historic Roman heritage upon which St Albans has been built. The park also includes a long list of facilities including; Tennis courts, sand courts, football and cricket pitches, An athletics track and field facility, a golf course, childrens play area, outdoor childrens Splash Park, a large leisure facility called westminster lodge Leisure Centre which contains a gym and indoor swimming pool, a cafe, a large lake fed by the River Ver, plenty of provision for picnics and family activities and what is thought to be the oldest and one of the most famous public houses in England called The Fighting Cocks. Overlooking the entire area is the St Albans Abbey, a large cathedral dating back to 1077AD. The park is an epicentre of greenery and wildlife and it is a hub of social and recreational activity that the people of St Albans can be extremely proud of.

Massive parkland area very popular on a sunny day like today. Sited with the museum and cathedral at each end. Lots of families, enjoying the fresh air, amongst the water, woods and grassy areas.

Really nice place for a walk, game of football/frisby, time out, taking the kids to the play area. I was absolutely amazed by how this expanse of park was right in the centre of town

Went for a walk around the park, lots of facilities including the café. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we sat overlooking the lake. Wonderful play area for children and the museum just outside the park.
