Victoria Park

No territory better exemplifies the tension between east and west London than Victoria Park. It sprang to life as a Royal Park but became municipal in 1887; it's rougher around the edges than its western counterparts and thus a great expanse to kick back and let nature revitalise you. Vicky Park is wonderful for youngsters too: the V&A Playground is equipped with swings etc, and the fantastically designed Pools Playground encourages creative play. Wildlife includes a deer enclosure, moorhens, grey and Canada geese and squirrels, while, by the lake, you'll find The Pavilion Café serves tasty, locally sourced food from breakfast to tea-time. In recent years the park has hosted the Underage Festival and Field Day, and every November park-goers in their thousands are treated to a wildly ambitious theatrical fireworks display which is laid on by Tower Hamlets Council.

This review is VERY dated. The park hasn't had a deer enclosure for YEARS. There is no mention of boat hire or the award-winning Hub Cafe which does a great range of affordable food.

NEW Turkish restaurnat in Victoria Park!!!!! http://www.thechambersrestaurant.co.uk/site/index.php Ok, so let me start by saying it is not my restaurant, I will not get free food for writing this, but I do have a vested interest in them doing well... I have been praying for a decent Turkish restaurant ot open in Victoria Park for ages. Chambers offers great falafel, borek and hellim right on my doorstep. Please give them a try.

NOTE: The playgrounds are closed this summer and will reopen in autumn.
