Victoria Park

As summer is on the way we need to do some maintenance to the Splash Pad Area and Play Area to make sure it is ready for everyone to enjoy. To do this safely we need to close the Play Area and Splash Pad Area on the 19th, 20th and 21st of May between 8.00 am - 4.00 pm.

You will also see the Splash Pad running during the next few days, but unfortunately this does not mean that it is ready for the public to use it just yet. We are just doing some essential maintenance to get it ready to open on Saturday 23 May, weather permitting! Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Victoria Park Play AreaVictoria Park is a Green Flag award winning park located on the banks of 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. To find out more visit the website Friends of Victoria Park.
