·        Albert Park turns 150 in August and as part of our celebrations, and in conjunction with Local History Month, Middlesbrough Parks will deliver 4 ‘walk and talks’ around Albert Park. These will be an opportunity to find out the history of the park from our Rangers, whilst also discussing your memories of your times in the park. We will carry on reminiscing over a cuppa in the café with some of your stories being recorded with a view to putting these stories on the wall in the Visitor Centre or producing a leaflet or book. The walk round the park should last an hour (depending on story telling).

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, statue of Brian Clough, Sundial, South African War Memorial and Canon from Crimean War.
