Long Description:

This Kiwanis bandshell was constructed in 1950 and reconstructed in 1990. There is much information about the park found at History of Victoria Park including this exerpt:

Victoria Park covers 18 + acres in the northeast part of downtown London. This area represents a portion of the original site of the 32nd British Regiment Garrison and Cricket Grounds. In 1874, this parcel of land was gifted to the City of London by an Order in Council as an Imperial Land Grant. The park was initially developed and designed for “passive” recreational activities. There are seven significant periods representing the history of Victoria Park
