Albert Park is landscaped with trees and bushes – no flower beds. There is a pathway inside the perimeter and grass lawns at the centre, including the super perfect lawn of the bowls club.

    Saturday 18th July was supposed to be Phab club holding the 7th Abingdon Amble around Albert Park.

    Sponsored walk, and social event. A quiet walk around the Park, followed by refreshments and a spending time with the St Michael and All Angels’ Church in their hall.

    Funds went into our Club Funds to go toward our Day Trip in 2021..

    This year was Planned to be to Poole on 25th June 2020.

    Albert Park is a lovely place, easily overlooked (I may even say happily overlooked) and easily taken for granted. I’ve been living in Abingdon for over 20 years now, and the park is currently looking as good as it ever has during that time (to my uneducated eye). Well done to everyone who plays a part in its upkeep and maintenance etc.
