Our last article on open spaces in Finchley N3 is Victoria Park.

Victoria park is situated in the North part of Ballards Lane near Essex Park. It is a pretty large park as the photographs will show.

Apart from a generous number of tennis courts they also have a public bowling club with two full size greens. In addition there is a large park café with a good choice of food and drink – and they are open from early until dusk.

Before I let the photos do the talking, I will mention that there is a bone of contention from many reisdent that there is only one toilet for the entire park and, should anyone from Barnet Council read this, they can look at our article on the Gordon Road allotments and see how they installed a public toilet without any plumbing and without any sewage outlets, in a perfectly hygienic fashion with this French invention, and in addition, had compost produced for the plants. It is truly amazing. And inexpensive to install!

And now for our photographs.
