Albert Road Recreation Ground has earned a Green Flag Award - given to parks which achieve and maintain excellent standards for public use.  The crowning glory of this park would be the wonderful Pavilion Café, where you can purchase a cappuccino, ice-cream, a Greek salad or panini.  The menu is far superior to most park cafes; offering tasty hot meals or quick cold snacks, making it a great location to meet friends for lunch whilst the kids burn off excess energy.  All drinks and meals can be eaten on the café’s spacious terrace which provides great views across the park.

The park also offers a range of facilities including tennis courts, a cricket field, a football pitch, basketball courts and a bowling green - something for everyone.  For younger visitors there is a popular children’s play area.

The park has an active team who run the Friends of Albert Road Recreation Ground (FARGG).  FARGG welcomes volunteers who would like to get involved with the park and have an excellent website listing all events and how funds are used to improve the park’s facilities.
