Memories of Victoria Park to thousands of people scattered throughout the world, are of childhood days spent playing, games and cricket, swimming, boats, sports days, feeding the ducks and animals, of sunny days listening and dancing to the band, of fetes and exhibitions, political rallies, and open air church meetings. Victoria park was never officially opened it was taken over immediately by the local people. Never had they seen such open spaces, beautiful trees and flowers. The pleasure they received has been handed down through generations. The park today is the legacy we have inherited, and is regarded with affection by all those who are privileged to have such memories of Vicky Park.
