The award winning Verulamium Park holds both the Green Flag and Green Heritage Site award. It is set in 100 acres of beautiful parkland close to the city centre and is a popular attraction throughout the year with a wide range of facilities.
The park is named after the Roman City of Verulamium on which it stands. The city walls and outline of the London Gate can still be seen. Verulamium Museum displays hundreds of remarkable objects that have been excavated from the local area.
Footpath Closures - Update, 26th March 2021
The Bell Meadow area of Verulamium Park is closed because the footpath has become dangerously slippy. There is now no access to the park from the St Michael’s Street entrance, opposite Prae Close, and no access to the meadow from the path around the artificial lake. Apologies for any inconvenience, but public safety comes first. These measures will be in place until the path is considered safe.
Verulamium remains open but please comply with the current social distancing guidelines when visiting.
The Children's Play Areas is open but please comply with social distancing guidelines and reconsider not visiting if it is busy.
The following facilities in the Park are closed due to the current restrictions:
- Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre
- Sports Pavilions
- Verulam Museum
