“THE CITY OF LAKES AND PARKS”
The city of Victoria was established in 1851 after a European settler migrated from St. Paul and set up a homestead for his family.
The city is named after the St. Victoria Church near Lake Bavaria. Victoria saw rapid growth in the late 1800’s as word spread of the fertile soil for farming and the railroad from St. Paul extended to Victoria.
Victoria has been nicknamed “The City of Lakes and Parks” because it has over 200 acres of reserved land, thirteen parks, and nine lakes within its borders. Victoria is also home to the Carver Park Reserve which is a 1800 acre wildlife preserve.
Victoria has a charming and vibrant downtown area. This pedestrian friendly downtown area has lots of quaint little shops and fun places to eat. Downtown Victoria exudes a small town vibe and lends its charming hand to building community amongst its residents.
Victoria has its own Police & Fire departments and City Hall. According to crime statistics, Victoria is safer than 82% of the cities in the United States.
