Dating back to 1887, Victoria Park is the oldest park in Salisbury and perhaps the most traditional: from the large gates to the perimeter fencing, Victoria Park reflects its heritage and history throughout.
Roughly, Victoria Park can be split into two areas:
The southern part of the park is typified by pretty flower beds, formal planting and established shrubs and trees, lending itself to pleasant walks and lazy afternoons. To complement this – offering something different, the northern part of the park features a large children’s play area and a variety of sporting facilities, including a football pitch and a pavilion.
Notably, the park is also home to the Victoria Park Community Tennis Centre (a joint venture between Salisbury City Council and Victoria Park Tennis) and to Salisbury’s Victoria Bowls Club. For more information about these sports – including availability and prices - please see below:
- From friendly games and fun days to coaching and tournaments, the Victoria Park Community Tennis Centre is perfect for players of all ages and abilities. Please feel free to contact the centre direct on 01722 415089 to book your court.
- Salisbury Victoria Bowls Club manages the bowling greens at Victoria Park, but rinks are usually available for casual visitors to play. For further information about the club or to make a booking, please contact Peter Pledger 01980 611436.
