Victoria Park

Frome’s first public park was created and opened around 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee.

Victoria Park Bandstand 2011 2 - StaffNot too surprisingly then, Victoria Park is the most formal of the town’s open spaces. This means boundary fences, close-cut lawns, rose beds and a variety of mature trees. The park also features a circular footpath running the entire way round – the sort of walking promenade that was typical and beloved of Victorian parks.

On the way round the park you’ll find a traditional thatched bandstand, a seasonal cafe, a bowling club and a garden dedicated to Rabka, Frome’s twin town in Poland. The park also has public toilets open during daylight hours throughout the year.
