Several beautification projects of Victoria Park were undertaken during the late nineteenth century. This included planting avenues of trees. When Queensland separated from New South Wales in , the Queensland Government made a concerted effort to provide recreational lands for the people of Brisbane, then and for the future.
It was believed that the fledgling society would benefit from having open spaces included in the infrastructure.
At a time when industry was choking many of the large cities in Britain and Europe, the Queensland Government did not want the same fate to befall Brisbane. Terms such as "lungs of the city" and "breathing space" were used to describe established parks in Brisbane.
A Board of Trustees was created at this time to manage Victoria Park; they "expeditiously drew up a code of by-laws which provided, not only for the protection and good government of the park, but also laid down the rules for raising revenue for the improvement of the park". This revenue raising included leasing arrangements for the park. This area is one of the oldest suburbs in Brisbane, and Victoria Park was seen as part of this suburb.
Spring Hill was home to a cross section of Brisbane society, from the very poorest living in small cottages in the lower slopes of the hill, to the prestigious and wealthy homes overlooking Victoria Park on Gregory Terrace.
By the end of the nineteenth century Spring Hill was the most populated suburb in Brisbane. Victoria Park provided an open space for residents of Spring Hill, some of whom lived in crowded and poor conditions at the bottom of the hill. In the period to , Victoria Park was the largest open reserve within the immediate city area.
In the Queensland Rifle Association constructed a rifle range in the north-east corner of Victoria Park. This was used both recreationally and for military and police training purposes; the range was used until , when it was closed. The military, however, maintained a presence in Victoria Park, even though it was designated a "public park for recreation, convenience, health and amusement of the inhabitants of the City of Brisbane ".
The importance of an extensive railway system throughout Brisbane and the surrounding areas contributed to Queensland's successful development. Victoria Park played a part in this development with a line from Roma Street railway station to Sandgate being constructed through the park in The line was routed around the outskirts of the inner-city and through Victoria Park to minimise costs.
This divided the park into two sections. After the railway was run through the middle of the park , the park was further reduced with the building of The Hospital for Sick Children in The children's hospital was built on the Herston side of the park as the hill rose to the north. At the start of the s a site in the north-west of the park was considered for a new Government House ; however Fernberg in Rosalie was leased for that purpose and later purchased in In Victoria Park played host to a globally significant scientific experiment carried out by the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism of the Carnegie Institution of Washington.
