Details

A section of farmland and allotments were purchased jointly by the Council and Trinity College, Cambridge and Albany Park was formally opened in 1902.

The park was probably named Albany Park after Leopold, Duke of Albany the younger son of Queen Victoria and who died in 1884. The park, originally 17 acres, was added to in 1921, 1926 and finally in July 1935 - it now totals 45 acres.

The park is part of the network of King George V Playing Field signified by the commemorative gates on Hertford Road. Just behind Albany Swimming Pool there is a building called College Farm. This was originally a farmhouse and was used as a stop over for the local farmers for overnight stays when taking their cattle to the London Markets.
The Council still uses this house today. During the Second World War, the park was used for greenhouses to grow tomatoes and cucumbers and the railings along Bell Lane were removed and melted down in support of the war effort.
