Victoria Park and Watercress Fields

Victoria Park FountainParks for People: Explore Victoria Park and Watercress Fields

The park has a pivotal role to play in connecting residents with the town's history, the local area and the built, cultural and natural heritage of the site. Not only that, but it is also a great space to explore the environment and access the great outdoors.    


Now we're looking to make the park an even better place to visit, with thanks to support from the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund. We have secured initial funding to develop a £3.7m restoration and improvement project.
