Just outside Widnes town centre, Victoria Park offers a place to relax, exercise or simply enjoy the trees, flowers and walks.
I entered the park from the Kingsway Road and passed the fountain pictured above which, for once was working.
Above is my image of another fountain at the far end of the park,
That second lake and fountain are home to many swans, ducks and geese.
There is also a nice woodland walk where you are likely to see squirrels and wild birds.
I made my way to the glasshouse which has recently re-opened the butterfly-house as a section inside.
Earlier in the year there were some Pentecost Doves exhibited.
In August 2022, the time of my latest visit, the Butterfly house was open to visitors.
The butterflies were magnificent, but there were too many types to include them all here.
As I left, I walked to see the flowerbeds, such as that in front of the war memorial.
I took a moment though to photograph the display in front of the glasshouse.
Before I left the park, I stopped to photograph the bandstand.
