Albert Park

National Parks and Reserves

Only three kilometres from the heart of the city, 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 sporting facilities, ovals, playgrounds, restaurants and a five kilometres of walking and running track.

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.

Enjoy watching the colourful sailboats on the lake and take in the magnificent views of the city skyline. Sporting facilities include a golf driving range, gymnasium and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

Parking fees apply to all car parks and kerbside parking spaces within Albert Park. Time restrictions and ticket requirements are shown on parking signs within the park. Tickets must be displayed prominently on the dashboard to avoid parking fines.
