These photos of Victoria Park covered in snow will help to banish any blues you might have this winter. Picturesque all year round, this green space on our doorstep has been transformed into an ethereal world dusted with snowflakes. This really is ‘the best park in the world’.
It may have been unseasonably chilly this past week, but it’s all made worthwhile by a stroll past the frozen lake, glittering in the early morning light. The wide pathways cutting through the park are turned into snowy tundras, sealed with the footprints of excited children (and adults too).
Chinese Pagoda, modelled as it was on the 1841 version built by James Pennethorne, is dusted with snow that accentuates the oriential design. Originally designed as a summer house, we think it looks as pretty as a gingerbread house in this weather.
The Coutt’s drinking fountain clad in white is straight from a Dickens novel, evoking visions of winter’s past. The gothic architecture attracts photographers and filmmakers year round and you’ll spot this as the backdrop for several grime music videos.
Running along the park’s edge is the Regent’s Canal, the barges float silently on the water like glaciers in icy waters.
With the last of the snow this year probably behind us, hopefully this photo essay will remind of our park, transformed with an arctic makeover.

As a not-for-profit media organisation using journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.
If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
