Victoria Park, Belfast
A park of some 60 acres, built on reclaimed land in 1906, between the industrial part of Belfast Harbour Estate and the Sydenham bypass, replacing an earlier pleasure park on Dargan Island (now Queen’s Island). There is a large lake with two islands. The park is partly enclosed by an embankment on the northern and western sides.
It attracts a considerable number of ducks and greylag geese. On one of the flight paths to the George Best Belfast City Airport – low flying aircraft are one of the attractions.
Part of the park is included in the Connswater Greenway project Link “Proposals in Victoria Park will protect and enhance its environmental and amenity value. Proposals include a new bridge into Airport Road, lighting, improved and new paths, an observation point, new toilet block, interpretative signage and a trim trail”.
Most of the park is level making it suitable for those with impaired mobility. There is a car park and public toilets.
