Environment

A wild space at the heart of the city

We celebrate the natural environment and ecology of the park which makes the place a place of relaxation and contemplation in the heart of the city. It is often described as ‘an oasis of calm among the concrete’.

We want Victoria Park to be a place where people come to learn about the importance of nature in our lives and for the city. Victoria Park has plenty to teach us about local habitats, bio-diversity, the environment and climate change. biodiversity.

The recent work has maintained the character of the park while improving bio-diversity through planting initiatives such as the wildflower meadow and wetland area.

The community can get involved through the community growing spaces, as gardening volunteers and with habitat surveys.
