Victoria on the River is an expansive amphitheatre-style park on Victoria St, in the heart of Hamilton’s central business district.

Offering fantastic views of the Waikato River and connections to the city’s popular river path network - popular with cyclists, walkers and runners - Victoria on the River (VOTR for short) formally opened on 25 January 2018.

VOTR is a major project as part of the Council's Central City Transformation Plan.

Hamilton City Council purchased the 4769p sqm site – previously occupied by the Waikato Times - in 2009, and committed the funding to VOTR in late 2015. Construction began in April 2017 after more than 6300 cubic metres of contaminated material was​ removed from the site.​

More than 9000 plants give it a green and organic feel and blend with adjacent Waikato River natural landscapes.​

The amphitheatre shape of the park means VOTR can be the venue for small acoustic performances -if you’re interested in performing at or booking the performance space, email

Key stakeholders in the project were Edwards White Architects, AECOM New Zealand and Schick Civil Construction.

VOTR is a welcoming and attractive public open space for Hamilton residents and visitors to enjoy.
