Victoria Park

Victoria Park was officially opened again after a multimillion pound facelift on 5 May 2012.

Victoria Park covers 88 hectares.

The park has over 4500 trees.

On the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest Victoria Park is listed as a Grade 2 park.



Victoria Parks History

Victoria Park was a much needed park in the East End of London. With the population growing, the docks developing, polluted air and overcrowded housing leading to poor health the East End's mortality rate was far higher than other parts of London.

Architect to the Commissioners of Woods and Forests James Pennethorne did the initial designs and by 1843 even before work was completed the park was being used.

Sundays became a very popular day for Victoria Park when people would gather around the Victoria Fountain to listen to speakers on a variety of subjects.

Much of the park was bombed during the Second World War and certain features in the park have never been replaced



Victoria Park and the 2012 Olympic Games

Victoria Park played a great part in the 2012 London Olympics. The park showed Olympic events live on large screens. There was also plenty of on-site things happening in the park from a 55m high observation wheel from where you could see fantastic views of the Olympic Park to artistic performances and exhibitions as well as the chance to have a go on a 320 metre zip line.
