Originally acquired by the Burgh of Partick, Victoria Park was named for Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee in 1887. The park is extremely popular with the public being one of the most visited parks in Glasgow. It contains extensive formal and informal gardens, an arboretum, a boating pond, bowling greens and tennis courts.
The park also contains the Fossil Grove museum which houses pre-historic fossils known as lycopods or giant clubmosses. There is also a recreation ground, a children’s play area with equipment suitable for children with disabilities, and the park features a hidden maze, cycle route and orienteering course. Victoria Park is listed on Historic Scotland’s Gardens and Designed Landscapes Inventory.
