“Awesome for events”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Nothing special about the park itself, but awesome if they have events. Sunfest , Ribfest, Caliente are all good times to go.

“Meh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Always looks horrible after the summer festivals finish up. The grass gets mashed and the trash overflows. Its a shame, really. The paths are well maintained. Just a little boring. Could use some more gardens!

“Sunfest 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Discovered Sunfest while surfing the web and we decided to go check it out. We are glad that we did!! What a wonderful Music Festival. Multiple Stages, variety of food from around the world (not just "festival" food), and a many different craft/art vendors.
We stayed at the Delta, which was just a couple blocks away and very convenient to everything.
Very enjoyable weekend overall

“London's urban gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Victoria Park is an urban gem at the northern edge of downtown London. Most of the year this 15-acre urban park is a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

But several weekends of the year, the park comes alive with festivals such as Sunfest, Ribfest, and Home County Folk Festival. Free talent performs on stages set up throughout the park, vendors have all sorts of items for sale, and food from many nationalities is available for purchase.

In addition, the Christmas season kicks off with the magnificent tree lighting ceremony, with the park becoming a multicolour winter wonderland.

Park features include the community cenotaph, a veterans' memorial garden, and the Kiwanis Bandshell. All winter-long, weather-allowing, free public skating is available on the outdoor rink in front of the bandshell.

This isn't the Big Apple's Central Park, but for London, it's a nice place to spend a few enjoyable hours.
