Frome’s first public park was created and opened around 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee.
Not 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.
