Been here a couple of times in the last couple of weeks. Lovely open, green space. Great playground with a real variety of things for kids of all ages to try out. Room to just chill or do something a bit more active. Keep an eye out for the ice cream vans around the entrances.

Every occasion is good to go there. I go for a run, I go for a walk, to have breakfast. I meet friends... It's the most beautiful park in London

We came here on Sunday when it was glorious weather/weekend, and it was rammed with people having bbqs as apparently its one of only a few parks in London where you can bbq. Worth noting!

I may be a little bias as I live in walking distance of the park but it's definitely one of my favourite in London. Part of the park is on the canal so you can take a stroll down the canal and then head into and around the park. The lake has boats and pedalos for hire, there are lots... More

Over the seven years I lived in London, I visited this park many times. It's well-used and very large and basically perfect for a picnic, barbecue (be subtle with it though) or some - let's be honest - daytime drinking, whether from an offie or at one of the pubs near the edge.

It is huge park with two play grounds. It is a favorite outdoor attraction for tourists and locals. It is a popular venue for concerts, fairs, and festivals. A good place to bring a family as there are plenty of things to do for people of any age. There are two cafes and ice cream trucks. You will find here fresh... More

Once reaching the must see Saturday's Brodway market, strolling down the canal towards Victoria park is obligatory. Already the way there is sweet and the park is just lovely. There is also a great café next to the lake, serving all types of beverages and a bakery at the same time. We had fun babysitting a 2 year-old there.

Went to Victoria park to watch the fireworks and it was amazing. One of the best displays i have ever seen and it was free. The price of the mulled wine was a little annoying and it burnt my hand as it came in a plastic non-insulated cup.
