With its main entrance along South Road, Victoria Park is situated within the heart of Haywards Heath. From this northern boundary the topography of the park can be viewed at its best, rolling away from you to the south.
For visitors wishing to use SatNav the post code area is RH16 4HT. The park doesn't have a specific post code, this is the closest property code to West Car Park in Haywards Road, which is a pay and display car park adjacent to Victoria Park.

Flora & Fauna
Mature tree planting within the park adds to the grandeur of this space, accentuating the impression of a natural amphitheatre. Formal bedding displays also add colour and interest, including a hebe border of plants rescued from a site that could no longer support a National Collection.
