Albert Park

Albert Park in the autumn

Albert Park is a beautiful green oasis just outside the town centre. The park covers almost 30 hectares, and includes play equipment for both younger and older children.

With wide open spaces and a central tree-lined avenue, it's the perfect place to walk the dog, meet friends, take the family, or just relax. Albert Park is one of seven parks in Middlesbrough to hold the prestigious Green Flag award.

What to do

If you're looking for something a little more energetic, you can hire a tennis court or take a spin on the rollerskating rink. You can find out more about times and prices below. Or why not lace up your running shoes and take part in the weekly Albert Park parkrun? It happens every Saturday at 9am, and it's free to enter. Find out more and register on the parkrun website. If you can't make it to parkrun on Saturday, the route is marked out around the park so you can run (or walk) it any time you like.

With the Dorman Museum so close by (Linthorpe Road entrance), why not visit both and make a day of it? Food is available from the park cafe in the visitor's centre, or from Dressers Tea Room at the museum.
