Parks & Recreation hosts Fun Fridays event series at Queen City Park

This summer, the City of Victoria Parks & Recreation is inviting families to Queen City Park for the department’s Fun Fridays event series, featuring activities, resources and a few sweet treats.

A different event will be hosted in Queen City Park 10:30-11:30 a.m. every Friday through Aug. 2, except for July 5.

“We wanted to give people in the Queen City neighborhood a reason to come to the park,” said Parks & Recreation Director Lisa Wube. “Neighborhood parks are a community resource that play an important role in bringing people together, and staff have been spreading the word about this event series in the hopes that families will join us and enjoy their park together.”

The event series, which began June 7, has already featured free popsicles, snow cones and a resource fair that brought local businesses and nonprofits to the park to share information about their services.

Going forward, staff intend to offer arts and crafts, games and volunteer opportunities, as well as a back-to-school drive when the school year gets closer.

What else is the City doing in the park?

The Fun Fridays series is part of a broader effort by multiple City of Victoria departments to help reactivate Queen City Park.

In addition to addressing security concerns through improved lighting and increased police presence in the area, the City has been encouraging residents to use the park through events such as the Keep Victoria Beautiful resource fair in 2023 as well as the Victoria Day of Caring service project on Victoria’s bicentennial date.
