The prettiest natural Victoria Park attracts everyone's attention! It is a must visit for everyone!
It is the London's 3rd largest and Tower Hamlets largest park. Victoria Park is locally known as Vicky Park or the People’s Park! Victoria Park is a very welcoming place and attractive locations for everyone of all ages and abilities for anytime of the year! There is something at the park for each member of the family. Vicky Park is always full of visitors - some doing exercises, some using the park as a shortcut to the other side, some having picnics, sunbathing, reading books, playing with children, enjoying wildlife, Angling on the lake, Boating on the West Lake, observing the wildlife, discovering the Spring Blooms, having a coffee break and/or lunch/brunch, having a stroll following the Walking Trails around the park exploring the history of the park, and historic trees!
Large, wider concrete footpaths very effectively connect all parts of the Park, entrances, features, playgrounds, and sports facilities! Hence, it is very much accessible for anyone with mobility restrictions, wheelchairs, mobility scooters, and pushchairs! Accessible Toilets ♿ 🚽 are available on both sides of the Park!
It is most commonly seen when travelling through the roads and/or Regent's Canal flanked by the borders of the Park. Grove Road splits the park in two sections - West and East! The smaller West Park boasts Victoria Park West Lake with Water Fountain while you’ll find the Victoria Fountain, Bowling Green, Tennis Courts, and Athletic Field in the larger East Park!
Because of the large wide open space Grasslands - Victoria Park hosts many large events including festivals, community events, 5K Runs, sports competitions and much more!
Was really amazed at how large this park was and what it had to offer. There's lot's to explore, including a little rose garden, mini sunken garden, and English garden.
There's a market of Sunday which has a brilliant range of foods. It's a great place for bikes or walking. The lakes are packed with wildlife and lovely views. There are a couple of cafés, loads of ice cream vans, and a limited number of toilets.
This is one of my favourite London parks and certainly the most under-rated.
It is huge (for London).
We entered it having strolled along the canals down from Camden heading east. There is a wonderful lake with pagoda and pavilion, including boats to hire. Several children’s playareas, a skate park, and lots of benches to sit in the sun or shady and lots of space to stroll around amongst the trees. Always busy even in winter with walkers, runners and dog walking. A wonderful park all year-round.
We walked right across it and then headed on towards Stratford. Lots of great walks taking in this park in the area.
Walking through Victoria Park,the boating lake and refreshment area then onto Pagoda Island,back round lake and then through Mile End Park close to the Canal and boats! It was perfect,breezy,warm beautiful to feel that with birds and wildlife buzzing around.
The canal boats were interesting to see,like being in the country it was so quiet,beautiful,take a picnic and blanket,therapy for sure 💛
Really cute, clean park! I did a half marathon here and the course was nice and flat. They have nice bathrooms in the cafe. The cafe has a wide variety of items including baked goods and drinks. This seems like a great park for dogs. Many people were walking with families and dogs.
