Verulamium Park is located close to St Albans City Centre, in the middle of the District, and lies within the ward of Verulam. It covers an area of 66.9 hectares (165 acres), with many footpath links into the adjoining countryside. Two of its boundaries are major routes into the city i.e. Bluehouse Hill and King Harry Lane.
The Park has a country park feel with a number of distinctive areas. The formal area of the Park is centred on the main lake with its two islands and the heronry and the smaller boating lake. Both lakes are themselves surrounded by paths allowing visitors to stroll around the lakes admiring the wildlife.
Large areas of grass meadow dominate the Park, along its boundary with Bluehouse Hill and King Harry Lane where spectacular views of the Park and Cathedral can be seen.
With good access and regular supervision from the Park Ranger and Leisure Management Contract Staff, the Children’s Play Area, adiZone, Toddlers Splash Park provide endless fun for visitors. The Inn on the Park, tennis, netball and basket ball facilities as well as the football pitches and cricket pitches are also located in this area. Located just off Holywell Hill is the new Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre and Abbey View Golf Track Facility.
Almost all the Park is laid out on gentle sloping land, with gradients in several directions. This adds to the attractiveness of the landscape and allows for spectacular view of the Abbey and City.
