Victoria Park, Stafford
(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Victoria Park is a Green Flag award winning park located on the banks of the River Sow in the heart of Stafford Town Centre.

Originally named the Victoria Park Pleasure Grounds the site opened in 1908 and is the Boroughs principal destination park. The park now covers an area of 4.95 acres. The park is the largest formal park in the Borough.

The site contains the listed structures of the Alderman Mottram shelter and the County War Memorial. The structure of the park has changed very little since the park was opened and as a result the original park layout is still in existence today.

The original park was extended twice, firstly in 1911 and secondly in 1930 when the play facilities were added to the North Western corner.

The park has an active friends of group who are an independent voluntary group who are active in increasing the community use and ownership of the site.
