Details about Albert Park
Albert Park was donated to the people of Middlesbrough in 1868 by Henry Bolckow, one of the founders of the iron and steel industry on Teesside. The park covers an area of 30 hectares in the centre of Middlesbrough.
The Park is Middlesbrough's only Grade II listed Park in the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.
There are a wide range of facilities available within the Park including a Visitor's Centre, Roller Skating Rink, Cafe, Swan hire on the Lake, Tennis Courts, Bowling Greens, Play Areas, Bandstand and much more. Some activities are seasonal so we recommend phoning in advance of your visit.
Additional points of interest include the Bandstand, a statue of Brian Clough, the sundial, South African War Memorial and a canon from the Crimean War.
Open daily: 7.30am - dusk.
Visitor Centre: 9.00am until 4.00pm (winter), 5.00pm (spring), 7.00pm (summer).
Pavilion: Available for use on pre-booked basis only.
** It's competition time!! **
It seems like a while since we've done a competition, so this month we've teamed up with our lovely friends at Middlesbrough Theatre to offer one lucky winner a family ticket to see Tree Fu Tom Live!
All you need to do to enter is let your child put their artistic skills to the test and colour in a picture of Twigs or Tree Fu Tom himself.
Check out the competition page on our website for the blank pictures to colour in, as well as full details and Terms & Conditions. The closing date is August 1st.
