Victoria Park

Victoria Park is a nice little public park in Hamilton City located north of City Hall and covering a full block between Victoria Street, Cedar Street, Washington Street and Dundonald Street.

There are nice shaded and winding paths across the park. You can see many types of trees and shrubs here including bushes, golden acacia trees and Norfolk pines. The main features are the sunken garden, lawns, and flower beds in traditional English style, and the beautiful ornate iron band stand.

The Band Stand was setup in 1899. During the British time, the regimental bands used to play here. In 2008, the band stand which had become quite dilapidated, was sent to Scotland for repairs. This was the only one of its kind and could be repaired only in Scotland from where it was originally imported.
