Victoria Park

Place  From 1845 

London's first public park. Known locally as Vicky Park or the People's Park, it was laid out by Sir James Pennethorne. It became a welcome relief from the cramped living conditions of the East End. Facilities like the bathing pond introduced many to swimming in an era when many public baths were still simply communal washing facilities. Queen Victoria visited 'her' Park in April 1873.
