Victoria Park is an attractive garden park located close to the town centre. As such it is a significant multi-purpose informal recreation venue for Rangiora residents and visitors to the town, catering for children’s play, central business district workers eating their lunches, family and community group picnics, community events, concerts and weddings. Perimeter hedging provides shelter and enclosure while formal rose and perennial gardens add to the park’s attractiveness. Pleasant seating areas are provided under the canopy of large trees, many of which are commemorative trees. Some of these trees, such as the large Sequoia located on the northern boundary, are a spectacular sight when hosting clusters of Monarch butterflies. The playground area which caters for toddlers and primary school aged children attracts users from all over the District. The park was initially developed in 1902 and many of the original historic features that make the park special, such as the historic gates and band rotunda, still exist today. The park has been the gathering place for residents on significant occasions - the Proclamation of Elizabeth as our Queen in 1952, and visits by Governors-General being among them.
