Victoria Park is a large, mature Southside neighbourhood, with some houses being over 100 years old. Like London Road, the homes are an eclectic mix of housing styles and densities, and poplar trees in the community provide a majestic canopy over the streets in the summer.
Amenities: Victoria Park has an excellent assortment of commercial amenities. Not only does it have services along Mayor Magrath Drive and 3 Avenue South, but there are several strip malls throughout the neighbourhood. Major employers in the area include Chinook Regional Hospital, St. Michael’s Health Centre, the Southside High schools, and the Lethbridge school district.
Gyro Park is the only park in the neighbourhood, but Henderson Park—the largest park in Lethbridge—is across the street, as are Henderson Pool, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden, Henderson Ice Arena, Spitz Stadium, and the SLP Skatepark.
Churches: There are several churches in the neighbourhood, including Catholic, LDS, Lutheran, Alliance, Baptist, and Presbyterian, as well as a non-denominational Christian church and a mosque.
Four buses service Victoria Park, offering connections to downtown and Lethbridge College. Mayor Magrath Drive, 13 Street, 6 Avenue, and 3 Avenue provide direct access to the rest of the city by car.
Schools: At seven schools—including elementary, middle, and high schools—Victoria Park has more than any other neighbourhood in Lethbridge. The two elementary schools provide French learning environments: St. Mary School is a French immersion school while École La Verendrye provides exclusively French curriculum from Kindergarten through Grade 12. Gilbert Paterson and St. Francis are the two junior high schools in the community, while the three high schools are Victoria Park, Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, and Catholic Central. Fleetwood Bawden is across the street from the neighbourhood and is the nearest public school providing an English curriculum.
