Connect Tees Valley

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.

Refreshments are available at the Visitor Centre (cold drinks and snacks). There is also a cafe attached to the Visitor Centre - this is externally run and provides hot and cold food and drinks. 

If you are walking your dog in the park please check our signs - some areas of the park allow you to let your dog off the lead.
