Victoria Gardens is a pedestrian-oriented, open-air, mixed-use town center in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Located North of Foothill Boulevard between Day Creek Boulevard and Etiwanda Avenue by the Interstate 15 freeway, the 147-acre (0.59 km2)[1] project consists of residential areas, office space, retail stores, public plazas, a movie theater, and a civic cultural arts center. It officially opened October 28, 2004.[1]

The Victoria Gardens Cultural Center, which features the Rancho Cucamonga Public Library, a performing arts center, and a multi-use reception hall, is owned and operated by the city of Rancho Cucamonga and sits north of the shopping center between the two parking structures.

In 2006, the former Robinsons-May store was converted to a Macy's Men's and Home Store to complement the existing Macy's. Unlike other cases where both anchors existed in one mall, Macy's did not move into the former Robinson's-May store and close its original location, because of the fact that both anchors were new and the original Macy's store was not built as a Broadway store.

The rest of the mixed-use development is owned by Forest City Enterprises.

There is also Victoria Gardens shopping centre in inner-suburban Richmond. San Tarascio recently paid $120 million to assume full control of further developments around the Victoria Gardens site.[2]

The mall increased the city's sales tax income by 44% in its first year of operation.[3]
