Victoria Park

Originally established in 1888, the gardens offer visitors a quiet escape from the crowds of St. Johns and Dickenson Bay. Among the flowers and trees, you will be able to relax and take a break from more active adventures.

Victoria Park if nothing else is a tranquil place to connect with nature. It houses the botanical gardens as well as the Antigua and Barbuda National Archives building. The public library is close by as well as the Ultimate Playground, a modest children's amusement park. Walk among the palm trees or rest on a park bench, watching the leaves sway in the breeze. For nature buffs, you can view yellow poui and lignum vitae trees. This setting is also great for picnicking with the family or a loved one.
