Lovely, historic, city park. No encampments as of April ‘24, disregard any posts saying so. Although perhaps not a destination in and of itself, if you’re in K-W, a worthy place to go for a stroll or let the kids play.

As the title I wrote, it's just a city park. I really have no more comments. If you are traveler, this park is definitely not a Must-Go place. To be honest, Kithener-Waterloo region is not a fun place for traveler.

Victoria park is one of the most cozy & adorable public park areas that we frequent. We love the clean, natural atmosphere, adorable river with fowl to admire, and an awesome picnic/play area. Perfect for picnics or strolls.

Victoria Park is presently a Homeless Encampment. There are no Christmas Lights displays this year due to vandalism. It is presently not an appropriate place to take minors or small children.

Nice park but trying to find a parking near it is a nightmare. Lots of people inside the park. Park is nice, has water body, playing area and washrooms.

I was excited to find this park close to my hotel to go for a walk. It was lovely until I came across the tent city. It was a nice place to walk but once I saw that I was sad and no longer enjoyed my walk. City - can you please help these folks.

Beautiful and inviting grounds with a great expanse of land for so many activities. The bridges and stream were lovely. However, coming across a huge tent city filled with homeless people was not disconcerting. I know it's not their fault for being there since they have no other choice but I did feel somewhat uncomfortable, as if I was the intruder.

City of Kitchener need to be ashamed of themselves. They need to find a solution for the homeless people but letting them move their tents in our city park is not one of them. I don't feel safe . I seen many people high out of their minds walking around and one even face planted in the grass and medical attention arrived. NOT A PLACE FOR CHILDREN. I also feel very concerned for Otis and Ophelia and the other wildlife. I heard rumours of people seeing them throwing stuff in the water. The person that told me called the city and they told that person there was other complaints of this. What happened to our family park we pay taxes for and where children can play without witnessing this??????

This has been my favourite park for years. We would love to go see the swans and enjoy the lovely green space. Sadly, as of July 2022, the city has allowed it to become completely overrun with a homeless encampment and local residents do not feel safe/ are being harassed while at the park. I can no longer recommend what used to be a lovely park.

Not a great experience. One must go themselves and see for themselves! There are low lives junkies sitting in corner taking drugs, and riding cycles,.! Yelling loudly, we are on drugs
Families with young kids should avoid going here.

There were homeless camps too right in centre of the park.

Not a good experience at all
