Victoria Park

This is a view of Victoria Park from Newhaven Road, with Victoria's son King Edward VII surveying the grounds on her behalf. The park itself was created in 1919 and was once known as Bonnington Park, after Bonnington Park House. It is now part of a Conservation Area that includes 'the Dudleys' and Summerside Place.

Looks like the monument is missing a couple of letter there ;)

It's a beautiful park though, and it must looks really gorgeous during Spring!

Don't forget to vote for the April theme! We get two choices this time, thanks to Elaine. Please help spread the word too.

Nice photo! One wonders if the park gets a lot of use.

Jacob: it's particularly popular with dog walkers :-s ... but yes it does get used quite a lot, especially in summer!

Thanks for the info. Looks like a wonderful place for dog walking or a casual stroll...

I take it some dog walkers don't do with the doo-doo what they're supposed to do.
