  • Had a wonderful meal this afternoon. The staff were amazing. The only problem was the squeaky door to the ladies and outside. It's such a simple thing to rectify and hopefully it will be sorted out so...  more »

  • I love Victoria Park it a fantastic place to take the children and with the new splash pool it's even better.fun in the day and a lovely walk with the dog in the evening. BUT......Please be aware that the new coffee shop BLOC that has just opened in the park is run by Michael Paton and last year he was dismissed from is job as a social worker for downloading indecent images of children. This was reported in Wales online and also if you Google his name you can also look at his disciplinary hearing and it was proven. As a parent i feel that anyone with children should be aware.😱
  • Victoria park is a great all round park. There is plenty of space to relax with a picnic or play ball games. There are two play areas, one for toddlers and the other for older kids with enough activitys to keep the little ones entertained for hours. Make sure to bring swimware in the summer as there is a well made splash park.
  • I love coming here. Especially good now I'm in wheelchair, but if you're wheelchair user don't forget to your RADAR key for the toilet
  • This is a lovely, traditional Victoriana Park with which Cardiff is well endowed. Pretty gardens, playing field, bandstand and a beach volleyball court (for some reason - never seen anyone using it). Tennis courts and now a splash Park has replaced the paddling pool. Large and well equipped children's playground. There is the iconic cafe, open in season and the park is popular with dog walkers and small children. Friendly, clean and well maintained.
  • "Vicky Park" was already pretty good with it's large paddling area and 3 age related play areas, not to mention the snack kiosk, a brick building right next to the paddling pool that's now, I believe, in it's Fifth decade. Now it's even better as the paddling pool has been revamped into a varied, but still watery themed, runaround area. There are various fountain type, er ...things and a Large bucket on a tower that slowly fills and then tips out over a shaped board to the delight of the children, (and a few adults), eagerly awaiting the widespread shower that ensues. It gets extremely busy in the summer, as you might imagine. I recommend bringing a foldout chair if you are there to supervise. At the least a soft something to sit on as the floor surrounding the water area, and within the railings surrounding it, is concrete.
