Albert Park

Albert Park (Victoria Parade, Suva) – it was named after Prince Albert, the Consort of Queen Victoria of Great Britain, to whom the country was ceded to in 1874. It was originally constructed as a cricket ground back in the 1880s. It has since hosted sporting events, national celebrations, visiting dignitaries, and was even the site of the first airplane landing (in 1928). Albert Park can currently hold four rugby matches at one time.
