Welcome to St Albans Verulamium Park

Verulamium Park is set in the grounds opposite St Albans Cathedral. The park itself is largely flat and in the winter is well-lit thanks to the floodlights from the running track. Running clubs at Verulamium Park are great for beginners looking to improve their running technique. Kit classes are frequently on the timetable to ensure members are challenged and encouraged to reach their limits.
