Went for a family walk through the park. Very impressed with the lack of litter and well maintained paths. The water was frozen still in places. Will come back again in the warmer weather.

Victoria Park has lovely landscaping, a circuit of the park, for those walkers and runners is exactly 1 mile, great for counting those miles. The park also has numerous Football Fields, a good children’s playground , seating all the way around the park for those of us that can’t make a mile without needing a seat. It also has a recently added new bridge which takes you out of Victoria Park and into the heart of the Titanic Quarter. The park also has a lookout for those birds stopping over during migration. There are a lot of birds to see as you walk round the park., BUT, what it no longer has, is 5 things which made the park what it was for those of us getting on a bit in years.
It used to have a lovely stone bridge which took you across to the football fields, now it’s a metal bridge, maybe it was unsafe now, who knows.
It used to have boats on the water and many a day I spend being a pirate and going onto the little island. The park also used to have a GREAT outdoor swimming pool. I can’t help thinking how popular that would be today. The park back then was FULL of lovely swans, but with the city Airport getting busier and busier, for safety reasons, they had to get rid of the swans. The last thing missing nowadays is the Bandstand. I remember many a hot day sitting on a deck chair listening to the bands that performed.
Back then you could very easily spend the whole day in Victoria Park.
I realize that time moves on and what we have today is a good running track, a great playground for the kids, a place to have a picnic or Bar-B-Que, Bowling Greens for those that play.
All in all I would say that it’s still a great wee park, but IMHO, nowhere near as good as when I was growing up in the 50’s and 60’s, but as I say, times moves on.

Victoria Park is quite compact but as it has recently upgraded paths surrounding a man-made lake it is a decent place to take the kids or dog for a walk. There are public toilets, ample seating and bins and a very good childrens' play park as well as a bowling green. A bridge connects the park with Airport Road and in the opposite direction the recently completed Sydenham Greenway follows the Connswater River and provides traffic free access to the remainder of the various Greenway foot and cycle paths in Belfast.

this park is great for all the family. it has a park, a park run, playing fields, bird sanctuary, parking, and you can access the Titaniac docks area by foot. a great place for a walk (all flat) and watching the planes arrive/take off from city airport. beautiful wild flowers and from here can join the comber greenway and walk through East Belfast

This is one of the most beautiful parks I've visited anywhere in the world. Take time to walk all three paths the main one, the outside loop to look out over Belfast lough and maybe spot a seal, or the inner one through all the trees.
