“Victoria Park is a public park located just to the north of Portsmouth Guildhall, adjacent to Portsmouth and Southsea railway station and close to the city centre in Portsmouth, Hampshire. It was officially opened on 25 May 1878 and was the first public park to be opened in Portsmouth. It was designed by Alexander McKenzie. It has a total area of around 15 acres (61,000 m2) and is planted with trees, shrubs and flowers. The centre of the park features an enclosed area which inhabits animals such as birds, rabbits and guinea pigs.”

“Outdoor park with concrete rinks, ramps & rails, for skateboards, BMXs, scooters and roller blades. Mini-wheeler sessions. Roller Disco summer sessions with the best DJs and live music. There are helmets, skates, skateboards and a limited number of scooters available to hire at reasonable rates. Please note that they recommend all users to wear helmets and all under 16s must do so. The iconic image of the skatepark is the bandstand, situated in the centre of the skatepark and built in 1928 as a traditional bandstand, surrounded by grass. In the 1930s a paved area was laid around the bandstand for dancing and for roller skating, surrounded by a low fence. Southsea Skatepark is arguably the oldest skatepark in the World, with the current ‘rink’ area dating back to a roller rink that was first built back in the 1950s. Back in the 70s and 80s the rink was only used for roller hockey. The skatepark was remodelled in the 1970s with concrete (bowls, snakerun, etc) and then modified again in 1990 with a new bowl replacing the old reservoir. In the mid to late 90s the rink area was built on with new ledges, banks, rails and ramps and in the last ten years two new mini ramps and a replacement vert ramp have been built. "We’re possibly the oldest and most iconic Skatepark in the UK – and celebrated our 40th birthday last year! We open all year round and welcome everyone from beginners to pros. Since 2011, Southsea Skatepark has been run as a charity. Every penny we raise goes towards improving the park and it’s facilities." The skatepark periodically holds contests catering for BMX, inline, scooters and skateboarding. BMX shop on site. Southsea Skatepark reflects it’s age, mixing the legendary concrete from the 70s as one of the first skateparks in the UK , with the contemporary street/park section, which includes a state of the art vert ramp, spine mini, and a 4ft metal mini around by the cafe. Southsea Skatepark covers a range of styles, from the snake run bowl that encourages carving and creative lines to the pool slalom run bowl that has just had a small box jump added to the top of the run. Next there's the mogul and keyhole bowl that link together and have brought so much history to the park, it’s fair to say visitors come and go and respect anything done in the keyhole bowl which is approx 16ft deep. It definitely adds that legit tag to anything you can do in it. What was originally the banked freestyle kick turn area, has now had a state of the art 14ft high / 40ft wide vert ramp with skate lite surface added. Next to the vert (surrounding the iconic bandstand) there's a flat bank hip and pyramid grind rail that flows into a 4ft hip into the skate rink.”

“The historic Hilsea Lido dates back to 1932, and has been enjoyed by generations ever since. Today, Hilsea Lido is a 67m long unheated pool, 1m deep at the shallow ends, and with a 4.5m deep diving pit. There's also a 2m diving platform in the middle. The Ladies and Gents facilities have individual changing and shower cubicles. Wetsuits are permitted. Beach shoes rather than bare feet are recommended for walking around the site. There are also wide doors and ramps to ensure everyone is able to enjoy the water. A small number of swim aids and water games are available, though swimmers are welcome to bring their own. During fun sessions the pool is divided to ensure safe management of the diving platform, which is open if sufficient lifeguards are available. 'Just Swim' sessions are for adults only, the whole length of the pool is available but the diving platform is not. Outside of the pool, there are picnic tables and plenty of space for sunbathing. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own seating and picnic supplies. Alternatively, why not head over to the Blue Lagoon to sample the homemade cakes, tea, coffee and various hot and cold lunches! You'll also find ice creams and ice cold drinks. For the more adventurous there is a long lake where you can hang onto a zip wire and surf!”

“The Cenotaph in the Guildhall Square comprises of two memorials - one to the dead of World War I and one to the dead of World War II. It is accessible at all times. The World War I Memorial includes two sculptures of machine gunners by Charles Sargeant Jagger (1885-1934), an artist who was a veteran of WW1 and a recipient of the Military Cross. He was wounded at Gallipoli, and again, near-fatally during the Western Front campaign of 1918. PEACE OR CONFLICT MEMORIAL. This white stone plaque on the pedestal to the North Gunner was paid for by Portsmouth City Council and unveiled on 6 November 2003 by Mrs Madeleine Dunn who heads the Portsmouth War Widows. THE WORLD WAR I MEMORIAL Preparations for the construction of the Cenotaph began almost as soon as the Great War ended, but it was not until 1920 that invitations to subscribe to the cost were made. A list of all who donated money and the amounts they gave is held at the Central Library in Guildhall Square. At the same time, local people were asked to nominate the service persons whose names should appear on the memorial, the criteria being 'That the man was born in Portsmouth, (or) that he resided in Portsmouth when the war began, (or) that his home was in Portsmouth when the war began'. Great stress was laid on the concept that 'Not a single name should be omitted', however a perusal of the local parishioners memorials shows a considerable discrepancy on this matter. THE WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL For 60 years following the end of World War II the only memorial to the men and women who lost their lives was a low stone wall at the rear of the Cenotaph with the words 'IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES IN WORLD WAR II 1939 - 1945' inscribed upon it. On 8th November 2005 a new WWII memorial was unveiled by Princess Alexandra. That this memorial should exist at all is almost wholly down to the dogged determination of Jean Louth whose father Harry Short had died on the beaches of Dunkirk. It was Jean Louth with the help of organisations such as the Normandy Veterans Association and the Portsmouth South Branch of the Royal British Legion who lobbied for funds to raise this memorial. This though was only the first phase as Jean was determined that the names of those who died should be included on the memorial and it took a further eight years to raise the funds necessary to inscribe and raise the twelve panels of names.”

“Millions of years ago, Mother Nature imposed Her will and carved a natural inlet into Britain’s south coast. Today her work is called ‘Langstone Harbour’. The inlet fills at high tide before draining out, leaving muddy flats, into the Solent and English Channel. On a sunny day, one can look northwest toward the rolling hills of the West Sussex Downs; the water is sky-blue lapping onto the beach separating sea and land, the locality now a protected nature reserve. In winter, when the storms lash the South Coast of ‘The Emerald Isle’, Langstone Harbour becomes a grey place to be. Rain, whipped up by strong gales, blankets the area; it soaks any walkers to the bone. This is what Mother Nature intended, whatever season, for us to enjoy. ‘The Peoples Memorial’, built by Willie Goldfinch, at his own expense, upon the shoreline of Langston Harbour, was created as a tribute to the serving men and women of our British Armed Forces who, today, find themselves at war on foreign battlefields, and to those who pay the ultimate sacrifice and in decades long past. And, as ‘The Peoples’ Memorial’ suggests by its very name, it is a very special place for everyone, of all races, religions, creeds and political leanings, to visit, to be at peace, and to pray.”

“Milton Locks, in the far east of Milton at the end of the eponymous Locksway Road, is located at the Langstone Harbour entrance of the abandoned Portsmouth and Arundel Canal which began operations in 1822. Little now remains of the old lock gates, wooden as they were, although the infrastructure is still evident. There are several pubs located along the former canal path, partly delineating its route towards Landport where it ended at the eponymously named Arundel Street. Traces of the canal survive further into central Portsmouth, as the railway line from Fratton to Portsmouth and Southsea railway station, runs along the earlier canal bed. This can be most easily seen from a street called Canal Walk, just off Fratton Bridge. Part of the former Portsmouth and Arundel Canal was located directly south of Middle Farm (later Milton Park) which was built across Portsea Island to Landport. When the canal closed in the middle of the nineteenth century, the section in Milton was filled in to form a new main road along the route of the canal, and was named Goldsmith Avenue after the local land owning Goldsmith family.”

“Beside Canoe Lake, St Helen's Parade, Southsea. Here you can find a small water play area adjacent to the adventure playground - set beside the Model Village and opposite Greens Cafe. There's no pool here but plenty of water jets to dart in and out of - and lots of fun. There's plenty of seating for adults and you're close to the Natural History Museum and a choice of cafes. FREE admission. ”
