Explore over 100 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens on this short walk in St Albans. In the park you can follow waterside walking trails along the River Ver and the beautiful ornamental lakes. Look out for a variety of wildlife on the water including grey heron, mallards, swans, herons, great crested grebes, coots, pochards and tufted ducks. There is also a cycle path running through the centre of the park.
The park has a fascinating history stretching back 2000 years. It is named after the Roman city of Verulamium on which it now stands. There are still large sections of the Roman city wall still intact and a fascinating museum where you can learn all about the history of the area.
The Ver-Colne Valley Walk passes through the park so there is scope for extending your walk. You can follow the path along the rivers Ver and Colne to Watford or Redbourn.
