Victoria Gardens is managed by Portland Town Council

Victoria Gardens in Portland were opened in 1904 to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, which was in 1897.

The grassed and formal bedding areas are a focal point as you enter the island. A large rockery running across the centre of the gardens is planted with a mixture of shrubs, perennials and bedding plants.


Play Area

A small fenced play area with equipment suitable for children, aged from two up to eight years old, is positioned at the upper tier of the gardens.

Tennis Courts

The gardens are wheelchair accessible from all entrances.
