  • There appears to be much confusion by reviewers on this site. Victoria Park is nowhere near the ferry terminal nor the National Library. (Maybe they confused it with Queen Elizabeth Park, formerly Par...  more »
  • We just happened upon this park while we were in Hamilton. It could be almost any place. There was only a small monument to World War I heroes. Not really worth a special trip. It is somewhat near the...  more »
  • Small cute Park, very well maintained and clean. The whole is filled with greenery and small statues, fountains, and even have a pond with Goldfish! In the middle of the day is filled with kids who were returning home from school, as well as tourists. There's not a lot of shops, but allowed to walk and sit on the grass, so even a picnic you can afford.

  • A great place for the children to run and play .I can get my walk in at the same time.
  • Victoria Park is behind City Hall and close to the Hamilton Bus Terminal: bordered by Cedar Avenue and Victoria, Dundonald and Washington Streets. A gated park: open daily from 0800 until dusk. Interestingly, it has the oldest provenance of all the original lots in Hamilton, having been set aside in 1790 as a public space at the time the original 145 acres of land were first auctioned off to start the new settlement. Although originally known as Dean's Bottom, it was renamed in honour of HM Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Ownership has remained with the Corporation of Hamilton; uninterrupted since that auction day in 1790. Worth wandering through if only to admire the lovely bandstand erected in 1889 to commemorate Her Majesty's Jubilee. (This was shipped back to the original manufacturer in Scotland in 2008 for refurbishment). In 1897, to commemorate Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, the Town of Hamilton became a City. This park, the City's first public park, was in these early years a fashionable meeting place where audiences could enjoy the music of military bands stationed on the Island.
  • Nice park. Lots of benches to sit. Has filter water station.
  • Very nice place to escape the city life for a while
  • Several homeless people in the park. Not good to visit with family.
