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.

This is a large park with a large children's play area and a large lake with herons and red Kites flying above also a Roman mosaic on display in a building (free to enter) and a portion of Roman wall.

We were lucky to be in England when the weather was at its finest, and spending time at Verulamium park was just brilliant. There is a large lake with waterbirds, and lovely leafy trees to provide shade on hot days. The grounds are well kept....More

its always well-kept and a pleasure to walk or cycle around. With the splash park and the coffee (and cake) shop there is not much left to want.

I enjoyed a stroll through the park with it's meandering river and roman ruins. The public toilets were in good order (and free to use).
