Victoria Park is the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of Newbury Town Council.
The Park features a children’s splash park, play areas suitable for toddlers and older children, tennis courts, a skatepark, boating pond, outdoor gym equipment, floral displays, a community cafe and is home to Newbury Bowling Club.
Victoria Park is host annually to a number of events and Brass & Silver Bands play throughout the summer on the traditional Bandstand.
There is an event calendar with a list of events.
On Monday 9 May 2005, the Newbury Time-Line Mosaic was unveiled.
This piece of community art was the brainchild of the Mayor of Newbury for 2004-2005, Councillor Mike Rodger, and executed by local artist Paul Forsey with assistance from more than 4000 local people and the support of numerous local businesses.
The largest benefactor was Greenham Common Trust. The mosaic depicts scenes from the history of Newbury over the last 1000 years on 12 linking panels.
For the full effect, you really should take the time and visit the mosaic, which can be found adjacent to Newbury Library, on the Wharf.
The tennis courts are open for play in accordance with Government Restrictions.
Both singles play and doubles play is permitted with people from outside of your household, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible.
For informal social play, group size is limited to a maximum of six people (or two households) by law.
People should not go to a tennis venue socially in groups of more than six .
A group made up of two households can include more than six people, but only where all members of the group are from the same two households (or support/childcare bubbles, where eligible)
Social distancing must be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble .
Newbury Town Council is seeking planning permission for a Community Café in Victoria Park.
