Only 3km from the CBD, Albert Park is popular for a range of activities like dog walking, jogging, cycling, sailing and rowing. Apart from the lake itself, other attractions include ovals, playgrounds, restaurants and a 5km walking and running track.

We enjoy a nice walk around Albert Park. It is not possible to access during the Formula 1 race weekend which happens once a year usually in March.

If you are in need of a good workout, away from traffic fumes etc, then a cycle around Albert Park Lake is just the thing. Approx lap distance 5.2km. Awesome to lap the Australian GP track

Hi Lou C, There's lots of open space at Albert Park; great for a casual game of football, frisbee, jogging or a picnic. Playing on the fields shouldn't be an issue, as long as there's no games on! The Visitor Guide (Park... More
