I am very proud of this superb park. The staff do a brilliant job. There are beautiful trees, shrubs, borders, roses, contrasting areas, a sensory garden, a nature reserve in an ancient wood - there' so much there.

Victoria Park is a great space in the city for enjoying sports or taking a stroll. There’s plenty of parking, which is free on Sundays

Just on the outskirts of the Leicester city centre, this provides a great place for a walk. From the main road, it looks as if it's just a load of football and rugby pitches, but there is an area of woodland too and this is,...More
