About Victoria Park Fort Lauderdale

The beautiful, 1.4 acre Victoria Park is set in the Fort Lauderdale residential area of the same name and brings back memories of Florida of days gone by, with its quaint, white gazebo and floral gardens. This is also true for the luxurious upscale estates in the park, where many of the homes are genuine, beautifully preserved 1930 “cracker” houses, many of which are historically significant.

The namesake park itself has a waterfront location and offers water sports, including stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. There is an open play area for the children and lovely walking and jogging paths. The park is also perfect for a relaxing picnic or barbeque. Victoria Park is beautifully maintained with limited parking in front and joins up by a bridge at the back to the Annie Beck Park.

Victoria Park is LGBT-friendly and is home to the Stonewall National Museum and Archives, with its many exhibits relating to a century of LGBT history.

The park is perfectly located, with several attractions of the city close by. The Galleria Fort Lauderdale upmarket shopping mall is an easy 0.4-mile stroll away, as is the beautiful English Park.  Holiday Park with its sports activities is 0.7 miles away, while Bonnet House Museum and Gardens and Gateway Shopping Center are both a 0.9-mile drive or walk away.

Many great restaurants are also located close by including Shuck N Dive, The Wilder, and Good Spirit’s Fifth & Fed, while the Victoria Park Hotel is an eco-friendly property with an outdoor pool and plenty of great room amenities.
