The wildlife pond on Victoria Park can be found within the eco-area to the south-west corner of the park. It was created around the same time as the eco-area, itself mainly to support and encourage the development of bio-diversity on the park. It is not primarily an ornamental or recreational pond of the type more typically found in public parks and it is not always seen as an attractive feature of the park, particularly when it dries out as part of its natural cycle in dry summer periods.
The pond has attracted different forms of wild-life and the information boards at the pond give interesting details of the different creatures that may be found within it.
In addition, water birds sometimes take up residence there and pairs of ducks are quite frequently seen. The associated wetland areas and reed beds also support wildlife of different kinds.
Work is ongoing to improve the pond making it better for wildlife and more attractive as a feature of the park. The Friends group recently added an extension to the boardwalk and the newly installed nearby nature and trim trail provides a further attraction for children and parents.
