Opened in 1912 to celebrate Queen Victoria's reign, Victoria Park is one of the jewels in Bideford's crown; any Bidefordian will tell you how lucky we are to have a park of this calibre in the heart of the town. The beautifully maintained park is surrounded by carefully tended flowerbeds and history. Within the park is a fort, surrounded by nine cannons which are believed to have been captured by the Spanish Armada, now primarily used for children to play out their games.
Recreationally there is plenty to do at Victoria Park, including:
- Two childrens play areas
- Childrens paddling pool
- Full size football pitch
- Rugby pitch
- Cricket pitch
- Basketball Court (1/3)
Victoria Park is also home to the Burton Art Gallery and the Cafe Du Parc, visit their pages to find out more!
