We stayed just a few blocks from this park and had the opportunity to visit several times. It is incredibly diverse in habitat and beautifully designed. There is a good variety of birdlife including nesting herons. A lovely place to stoll!

The park is beautiful. Watched the surfers sail in the wind. The cargo ships were cool. The water/strait was clear and just a great place to enjoy the scenery and relax

Excellent large cedars etc.but the best natural parts can be found towards the back of the park-you'll have to really look- owls,humming birds, eagles,etc. overall a good park with things for kids and adults young and older.

Great park for families, with a cute and well-maintained petting zoo and lots of peacocks wandering around. Beautiful and lots of trees, great views of the water from different parts. Highly recommend to anyone, especially with kids!

What an amazing park. Where else can you see wild peacocks and turtles, a petting zoo, tons of flowers and across the street from the ocean. One of the best parks I have ever been to!

SO close to downtown Victoria - an easy walk and there you are in a lovely park with lots of water features, flowers, trees, and even a petting zoo that even adults would enjoy! Peacocks, goats, butterflies - lots of fun! Highly recommended!

This is a beautiful and peaceful park in Victoria, BC, right near the ocean, where you can get away and relax. There are beautiful gardens, duck ponds, trees (lots of shade!), a petting zoo with pygmy goats, pot bellied pigs, donkeys, chickens, and guinea pigs....More

Well the trees are a little larger since 1969. Not sure if naming post is there. At the North end of the Park (Southgate) by the Ball & Soccer field's.
