Albert College Park (also known as Hampstead Park) is a public park owned and managed by Dublin City Council Parks and Landscape Services Division. It is located on the Ballymun Road in Glasnevin next to Dublin City University and is often called an oasis in the city.[1]

The National Tennis Centre is based in Albert College Park.[2] There are gaelic football and soccer pitches, used by a variety of clubs such as Na Fianna, Glasnevin Soccer Club and Bohemian F.C. youth teams. The park is also a venue for the junior parkrun. There are Boules (pétanque) courts and a children's playground.

A 3.5 km Slí na Sláinte exercise trail route links the park and the Dublin City University campus.[3]
