About Your Park

Set in a very residential area of Haringey, with two schools backing on to the perimeter of the Park, Green Flag award winning Albert Road Recreation Ground is incredibly popular with both adults and children of all ages.

Within the vast expanse of the green open space is the popular and much loved Pavilion Café. Providing a community focal point often used for meetings and parties, it is also home to Haringey Tennis (external link) an organisation that manages and takes bookings for the Park's very popular tennis courts. In 2010 the site was awarded Beacon status from the Tennis Foundation  in recognition of its high quality, affordable community tennis programmes.

The Pavilion Café's terrace provides the perfect viewing point to watch the regular football and Aussie Rules football that takes place on the playing field throughout the year.

Albert Road Rec has many facilities. The brightly coloured playground is a favourite for the younger children and the tennis and basketball keep people of all ages entertained. The old bowling green and pavilion now offer the community a variety of events and activities organised by the Pavilion Café.

An Oliver Tambo memorial was erected in the park in 2007, and there are currently plans to extend this.

Albert Rec received a Safer Park gold award from the Mayor of London in 2011 and it became a Queen Elizabeth II designated park at the end of 2011 gaining protection in perpetuity.
