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.

Visited during a weekend stay in London. The park is expansive with a great deal to take your interest. Whether you are looking to just have a stroll or take in some of the history and art, you will enjoy your visit. Plenty to keep the kids entertained and a coffee stop next to the lake to rest tired legs.

Visit Victoria Park! It lends itself to leisurely walks with your family and friends. A well-deserved treat after a stuffy week in the office. Watch out for the local cyclists (ding ding) and joggers, especially along the Hertford Union Canal! It can be accessed from Old Ford Road, Lauriston Road, Victoria Park Road and Grove Road.

A good place to rest, relax, people watch in London. Not very touristy. Lots of waterfowl, statues, jogging paths, pagoda, and a cafe with good coffee and cookies.

Large open green park, big lake,lots of trees, paths to walk, cycle routes. Watch out for the large romantic bandstand,the multicoloured bridge, and the stunning oriental pagoda. PLENTY of pictures to be had.:))) Really enjoyed the walk.

Lovely park with lots to do. There's a pool, courts, a cafe, bike rentals, monuments and great views of The Gherkin and The Shard. A great place to visit and escape the busyness of London life.

I was born and spent most of my life in Hackney, 'Vicky' park was the local park for Hackney (Homerton) if you discount the marshes, Mabley Green or Well Street Common, Vicky park was always the place you would find most kids, in the swings, playing footie, on, or in, the boating lake, and most definitely in the Lido (swimming...

Victoria Park is a nice park in East London. I would advise you to go there through Regent's canal (very nice walk). There is a lake, a Japanese pagoda and a lovely café. In spring it's really beautiful because there are many flowers.
