Our Fun Ambassadors
As part of our Fun Starts Here campaign, we asked a group of people who have supported Victoria Park for many years to become our official 2019 fun ambassadors. We hope by publishing their stories we could encourage others to reflect on their own happy memories at Victoria Park, as well as visit to make new fun memories.

Bridie remembers first playing Putt Putt at Victoria Park when she was just 4 years old. A decade later she still loves spending time at Victoria Park, as does Patrick, one of her three younger brothers. Bridie and Patrick love how much fun they can have with their friends at Victoria Park, playing Putt Putt, visiting the Driving Range or simply enjoying a meal at the Bistro. If you’re thinking they’ve mastered the Putt Putt course then think again, they say they find a new trick for getting a hole in one every time they come back.
