Background
A lovely public park in the Trinity area of Edinburgh . Two good play areas; a small one for toddlers and a larger one for the older children. Lots of green areas to kick a ball about and a large circular path where many have learned to ride their first bike. The park has been awarded a Green Flag since 2011, in recognition of it being a quality greenspace.
Visitor information
Victoria Park is on the North Edinburgh Cycle Network, probably the only British urban network to get you across the city without meeting any motor traffic. It is also part of the National Cycle Network and North Sea Route . Spokes cycling maps also contain loads of useful information for cyclists planning to explore the city and surrounding areas.

It can also be reached by Lothian buses 21,11 or 14.
