London, Victoria Park

Victoria Park, London

Victoria Park is one of London’s most important historic parks and its oldest public park. It has been used by millions of Londoners for nearly 170 years as a place of healthy recreation, sports, play and relaxation. The park is the largest in Tower Hamlets, and is bordered on its northern boundary by the London Borough of Hackney. It serves a large residential population in both boroughs and also attracts many tourists and visitors from outside of the borough.
