A Peek at The Park


Victoria Park Friends Group is pleased to announce an opportunity for the public to see the works in progress in Victoria Park as they near completion.

Richard Desmond Chair of Victoria Park Friends Group said:
” The park will be reopening in the Spring but the massive works being undertaken in its biggest refurbishment since its construction has inevitably caused some concern to park users this is an opportunity to see how the park will be returning to use serving the communities of East London that it was built for.”

“The park is getting close to being finished come and see it, it’s your park!”

The day will run from 11:00AM until 3:00pm with The Park Rangers leading tours of the new features of the park.

There will be the opportunity to join the Friends Group and sign up to volunteer in the park and live music on the bandstand

11:30-13:00 – Kiniro Saxophone Quartet
13:00-14:30 – The Bethnal Green Bigband

The friends group is looking forward to welcoming the local community to this event and is planing further activities in the coming months.
