Victoria Park is an urban park on Spring Garden Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, across from the Halifax Public Gardens.

The North British Society erected various monuments and statues: Robbie Burns, Sir Walter Scott and William Alexander, 1st Earl of Stirling.

At the south end of the park is the Colonel Sidney C. Oland Memorial Fountain.

On the base of the Robbie Burns statue are commemorations of the following poems:

  • Front: The Cotter’s Saturday Night – “From scenes like these old Scotia’s grandeur springs.”
  • Right: Tam O’Shanter’s Ride – “Ae spring brought off her master hale but left behind her ain grey tail.”
  • Left: The Jolly Baggers
  • Back: To a Mountain Daisy – “Wee, modest, crimson-tipped flow’r; Thou’s met me in a evil hour.”
