Victoria Park

Easily accessible from Warrington town centre, Victoria Park makes a great place to get away from it all.

The town's premiere site for sport, its 67 acres provide a wide range of facilities set in pleasant parkland. At the centre is an eight lane running track with a floodlit pitch. The arena's stand seats 250 and houses toilets, changing rooms, a kitchen and community room.

Skatepark

This purpose-built, world class, exciting and imaginative concrete skatepark is provided for skateboarders, BMX riders, rollerbladers and in-line skaters. Users are advised to wear the appropriate protective clothing. Please see the sign at the entrance to the skatepark for further details.

Playzone

A wide range of play equipment and attractions for children and young people are now on offer. The playzone boasts some new play features to Warrington parks including a unique six -metre high 'alien' play module and a challenging zip-wire ride. This £108,000 project has been achieved with funding support from external grants, contributions from the park's project partners and a Landfill Tax Grant of £85,000 from Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd.

The project is part of the Communities Vision Project for the redevelopment of Victoria Park. The Victoria Park Steering Group is currently progressing with a range of other projects including improved park lighting, a new park café and activity centre, and the launch of the community garden project.

Victoria Park is home to Warrington Athletic Club who meet on a Monday and Wednesday (6–9pm) and Thursday (6.30–8.30pm). For further information contact the Warrington Athletic Club Chairman on 01925 261999.

Bowlers are well catered for with two crown bowling greens – one of which is floodlit and a pavilion complete with toilet and kitchen facilities. And for the green fingered Victoria Park has two allotment sites with over 80 plots in cultivation.

Eight football and three rugby pitches along with a floodlit training area are well used by north west teams while the park also hosts many events from cross country competitions to pop concerts and rallies.
