Victoria Park is a small park in the city of Aberdeen, Scotland.

The park has an area of five hectares and was opened to the public in 1871. It is named after Queen Victoria. In the center of the park is a fountain made of fourteen different types of granite that was presented to the citizens of the city by the Granite Polishers and Master Builders of Aberdeen. A greenhouse and conservatory used to present in the south-east corner of the park, but were demolished in early 2014 as a result of repeated vandalism.[1]
