Highfield Park is situated on the south eastern side of St Albans in Hertfordshire. Highfield Park is rather unusual, rather than being financed and managed by the local council, a dedicated charity called Highfield Park Trust manages the Park. The Park was created in 1996 following the closure and redevelopment of Cell Barnes and Hill End Mental Heath Hospitals. The hospitals had extensive grounds, which now form Highfield Park.
