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.
