Victoria Park - Heritage Lottery Fund


    Work will start this September on the £2.5 million restoration of Victoria Park. The aim is to make this award winning park more popular for residents and visitors as well as improving facilities. 

    The work is expected to take around 15 months to complete.

    Events scheduled up until September are all able to go ahead and will allow everyone to make the most of the park through the summer months.

    Take a Victoria Park Virtual Tour (opens in new window) to see details of the proposals.

    We will also provide regular updates on plans, the progress of the development, and events before and during construction.

    Below is the masterplan for the park. Click on the plan to see a larger image.
