Victoria Park

About

The park is divided by a central lake, formed by a natural creek and originally developed as a perch pond. The lake was once used by anglers, boaters and swimmers before becoming a refuge for waterfowl.

A well established walking track follows the lake edge through native plantings and offers many seats for picnics and reflection.

A poignant reminder of the sacrifice made by Stratford’s young men in the Great War stands at the corner of Fenton and Orlando Streets in the form of the Victoria Park Memorial Gates, unveiled on ANZAC Day 1926.

In 1997, the Fenton Street boundary was planted in rhododendrons and flowering cherry trees. Now mature, these trees and shrubs give an attractive spring display of colour each year.

A playground and skate park are popular features of the park.
