Only 3km from the heart of the city, 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 sporting facilities, ovals, playgrounds, restaurants and a 5km walking and running track. Sporting facilities include a golf driving range, gymnasium and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
Enjoy a barbecue or picnic with the family. Hire a boat and explore the lake. Walk, cycle or jog around the track, past green lawns and playing fields.
Albert Park Master Plan
A master plan is being drafted to set a 20 year vision for Albert Park to guide it through the next stage of its history.
Since the commencement of the Albert Park Master Plan in early 2014, a number of projects have arisen, including a proposal for a new underground railway station near Kings Way, Junction Oval redevelopment, and the delivery of South Melbourne Park Primary School. The project team is currently refining the master planning process to accommodate these projects.
In the coming months Parks Victoria will further develop the project web platform to present more detailed project information and extend the opportunities for community engagement. Information about opportunities for community members and stakeholders to participate in meetings and workshops, as well as online consultation will be provided.
The purpose of the first phase of consultation held in 2014 was to identfy what is most important to people about Albert Park. It also identified what visitors consider are the key issues that need to be addressed through the master plan. Consultation engaged more than 500 individual stakeholders through open forums, onsite displays, online communications and targeted meetings.
The online response was overwhelming with more than 300 individual surveys completed, and 3,500 visits to the website. Thank you to everyone who participated. This engagement provided vital information which guided the development of the:
Albert Park Master Plan Background Report 2015 (29.8mb PDF)
Issues and opportunities paper (15mb PDF)

Organising an event at Albert Park
A wide variety of events are held at Albert Park throughout the year, with the peak period during the summer months. Events range from fun runs, sporting tournaments, international and national level of competition.
Albert Park is on Crown Land, therefore it’s managed under the Crown Land Reserves Act 1978. Under the Act a person must not conduct an organised event unless in accordance with a permit issued by the Committee of Management (Parks Victoria).
To enable Parks Victoria to prepare for the demand on the park an Expression of Interest process is undertaken annually, in line with the financial year, to hold events at Albert Park. The calendar allows Parks Victoria to set down public events, inform stakeholders of scheduled events and associated road closures, thus avoiding potential clashes with tenant activities. Expressions of Interest for the 2016/17 Albert Park event calendar opens Wednesday 24 February 2016, and submissions are due by close of business Wednesday 23 March 2016. Information for the Expression of Interest 2016-2017 Program is available in the Event permits section of the website .
For further information about hosting an event at Albert Park, please contact Parks Victoria’s Statewide Events Branch on 13 1963 or firstname.lastname@example.org
