Park · Nature / Park
Forget all your worries by strolling the manicured gardens at Victoria Park, known for its population of black squirrels. Watch the skateboarders or catch a live performance at the band shell, home to many special events during the warmer months. Consider bringing a picnic lunch and finding a quiet spot to relax and replenish your strength before continuing your city tour. During the colder months, you can skate at the park's ice rink--it's a tradition that's lasted for over a century here.

  • Often when I walk there with my family, I feel unintimidated by garbage, some loud people etc. Not always a safe place to be  more »
  • I love Victoria Park as it is the heartbeat of London. You can picnic or just stroll, great concerts, close to Richmond Row and Downtown plus hotels and shopping.  more »
  • Nice park just to go for a walk through. Lots of squirrels to see and chase if you have kids! Very well kept and neat.  more »
  • The heart and spirit of downtown London. Whether it’s full for a festival or free space for reading, playing and in park yoga. You’ll find all kinds of Londoners lounging on the grass in the summer time - a blissful place worth a walk around. Not to mention where all of our best Rally’s are held and themed marches usually start or finish here as a meet up place. Truly a highlight of the core
  • Not too interesting, though fun events are held here often. But it's a good place to hang out, or walk your dog. The skating in the winter is free as long as you have skates. Overall a solid park.
  • Went for a quick skate on the ice rink in the park, parking is free after 7 and skating it free if you've got your own skates. They resurface the pad throughout the day so it's always a nice skating surface.
  • Excellent well maintained park that’s usually busy in the summer and full of events. Live music stage & cool army tank monument! Ribfest is a summer favourite here!!!
  • We used to live not too far from Victoria Park and we used to go here all the time. I used to stop to eat my lunch here. My wife says that the area has gotten worse and she doesn't feel safe going there anymore. I personally enjoy some of the festivals and events that happen here.
