The Public Works Department personnel are responsible for the maintenance of all parks within the Town limits, under the supervision of the Parks and Recreation Manager.
Victoria Park boasts beautiful landscaping and an outdoor bandshell available for many types of entertainment.
This park runs alongside a small creek that passes through this town know as, Scallion Creek. This area is known for its beautiful scenery and its walking trail. Few trees are located on this lot, allowing areas for picnics and outdoor activities.
Nelson Street Park
Bennett Crescent Playground
April 22nd, 2021
Please be advised that the town of Virden will be removing a number of the overgrown poplar trees in the Bennett Crescent playground starting this week, in order to facilitate playground refurbishing and stop further damage to infrastructure.
Portions of these trees are dying, making them a possible fall and property damage risk. The poplar tree root systems are also known to cause problems with sewer systems and damage to curbs, gutters, and asphalt, whose replacement is costly to the ratepayers.
As part of the refurbishing of the playground, new trees that will be more suitable for an urban setting will be planted.
April 28th, 2021 Update
- A crew will be working on Bennett Crescent later this week to clean up all the debris from last week’s tree removal. This includes inside the park and on the surrounding street.
- New play equipment for the park is currently being researched, as well as how long it will take to arrive.
- Further updates and information will be posted here and on the Town of Virden - Parks and Recreation Facebook page.
