Only 3km from the CBD, Albert Park is popular for a range of activities like dog walking, jogging, cycling, sailing and rowing. Apart from the lake itself, other attractions include ovals, playgrounds, restaurants and a 5km walking and running track. Sporting facilities include a golf driving range, gymnasium and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC). Enjoy a barbecue or picnic with the family. Hire a boat and explore the lake. Walk, cycle or jog around the track, past green lawns and playing fields. Catching the tram is a great way to get to Albert Park. All trams that travel along St Kilda Road stop within easy walking distance of the park and the 96, 12 and 112 trams run past the park from the Melbourne CBD to St Kilda. Limited parking is available for park users within Albert Park (parking fees apply).

If you are in need of a good workout, away from traffic fumes etc, then a cycle around Albert Park Lake is just the thing. Approx lap distance 5.2km. Awesome to lap the Australian GP track

Really lovely park to visit, the grounds are beautiful and well kept. There are also loads of excellent cafes and bars around the area so it's perfect for a day out. Easily accessible by walking, driving or getting public transport.

Big open spaces, plenty of off leash areas for the dog and not many people about. Best local park except for when the Grand Prix is on, and locals are barred for weeks.

This is an awesome place to pack a picnic and take the kids to roam around. Nice wide open space to enjoy the day, away from the 4 walls at home. This is a thumbs up for me 👍👍👍

Only a stone's throw from the Melbourne C.B.D. this magnificent park and lake is a real gem. It provides a green space with water with great view of the city skyline. Even on a blustery winter's day it was a pleasant place to stroll.

Hi Lou C, There's lots of open space at Albert Park; great for a casual game of football, frisbee, jogging or a picnic. Playing on the fields shouldn't be an issue, as long as there's no games on! The Visitor Guide (Park... More
