Victoria park is an historic park, surrounded by modern infrastructure, and is an oasis for wildlife

There are two possible circuits of the park, an inner and outer loop around the lake.

The outer loop path begins at the car park alongside the lake. As you face the lake, follow the path to the right. Paths are surfaced with the option of grass paths also.

Continue along the path past the bowling green, a small rose garden, the children’s playground and a BMX track. Follow this path round to your left.

Further on the path runs along an embankment between the lake and Connswater River. Across the river are the Short’s aircraft factories, which in turn are overshadowed by Samson and Goliath. Continue round the lake to the starting point.

To cycle the inner loop, return to the car park, cross the footbridge over the lake and turn right. The mown path meanders through the trees, again following the line of the lake.
