Victoria Park (London)

Victoria Park is a large urban park in the East End of London.

The main entrance is in Old Ford Road.

Victoria Park was opened in 1845, and was London`s first public park. It was created in response to a petition with 30,000 signatures presented to Queen Victoria by a local Member of Parliament.

The original idea was to create an equivalent of Regents Park for East London, and originally it had its own Speakers` Corner.

There is a Pagoda, lakes and play areas, and the park has become known for its concerts and festivals.
