Victoria Park, Kitchener
(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Spend a day in the oldest park in the city at Victoria Park. The park not only has a history going back to the 19th century, but it also offers plenty of features. A picnic shelter offers a place to eat, or take the kids to the playground and splash pad. Others may want to make use of the horseshoe pit or basketball court. A historic clock tower adorns one of the entrances. The park’s pavilion, which the city rents out for special events like musical performances, is a must-see.

  • I visited this beautiful park several times during stay in B&B at Forest Hill. I went to Kitchener City Hall through this park by bicycle. 
  • Victoria Park is located close to downtown Kitchener. The trees that were planted at the beginning of the 20th century are now mature and cover much of the park's grass and flowerbeds. The pond has re...  more »

  • Super nice place to go during the summer, right in the heart of Kitchener ON. Lots of events going on during the summer and the Boat House is a bar located right in the middle of the park. Excellent place to have few drinks and relax looking at the little lake. Nice place to work and also has playground. I love Kitchener!!
  • Wonderful paved walkways. Great place for the whole family. Loads of grassy open spaces, waterways, trees, benches, picnic tables, etc. Pet friendly, Splash pad and Kids play area, including a basketball court! There's even a Restaurant called the "Boathouse". So far everyone I've met is very friendly.
  • Great park! I loved all of the bridges. The kids playground was my favourite part, it felt so lively. The park was also very big and there was a lot of area to walk around and explore.
  • Many options for play for children age ranging for just walking to 10 years old. A nice place to go for a relaxed stroll or even a bike ride. Perfect for playing Pokémon Go as it has a few gyms and many pokéstops. There are ducks and squirrels aplenty who are very friendly. Lots of benches for seating.
  • A nice quiet part to go to. Victoria Island is quaint with the ducks in the water. In the summer, they offer paddle boat and canoe rental. Prices are a bit steep, but, if you want to have a nice 1/2hr-1hr paddle, go for it!
