Improving our Parks

Victoria Park Improvements

Victoria Park is a 5.7 hectare park in the Strathcona neighbourhood of central Hamilton in Ward 1. The park is bounded by a mixture of residential housing types, a school, and the King Street commercial shopping street corridor to the south. It is a well-used park with some aging amenities that require replacement.

Public Engagement

Please visit engage.hamilton.ca/VictoriaPark to learn more about the spray pad replacement and sun shelter plan and to provide your input. The results from this engagement will be used to inform and guide the planning and design of the new spray pad.

Background

The existing spray pad in the park is nearing the end of its life cycle and needs replacing. Since this park currently lacks a sun shelter, a new structure will also be included as part of this rejuvenation work. The sun shelter addition forms part of the continued Victoria Park Master Plan implementation.
