It is hoped that the project could start this year to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The Town Council is seeking views on renaming the area 'Jubilee Gardens'.
Mayor of Newton Abbot, Cllr Anne Fry said: "I am delighted that we are so near to realising plans for the revitalisation and improvement of Victoria Gardens.
"We have listened to what businesses and residents want - and I think that everyone will be pleased when they see the plans."
The town will be buzzing on Saturday with the Town Criers Competition and the Big Market Day including the French Market.
There will be further opportunities to see the plans during the following week. Displays will be set up in the reception of Teignbridge District Council Offices in Brunel Road and at the Town Hall in Devon Square.
There will also be a display in the window at the former Stokes greengrocers in Market Walk.
