    Lovely park in the city
    It’s a must visit for us every time we are in Victoria! This park is kept very clean with amazing flower beds and landscaping. There is always something new that is worth seeing along with the tallest totem and mile 0. It’s a great place to go for a walk, relax, have a picnic or take in the beauty of the surroundings.

    Beacon Hill Park
    This park is very beautiful and extremely green! There are heaps of different gardens to see and unique statues and displays. It’s a perfect place for a walk, picnic or just a place to relax! We spent about 45 minutes here, if you go for a walk it’s very flat and easy! “Jonique Life” If you find value in our reviews please consider following our social media outlets on Facebook and Instagram as we highlight magical places you can add to your ever growing bucket list.

    Very nice park, but a good map available for visitors to find everything would be useful.
    Generally a nice, expansive park. Very hard to follow the map that I had to find everything. We tried to see everything, but there were a couple of things that we could not find. Nice garden and lake/water areas. Loved the Peacocks. The park was generally clean, but the area immediately surrounding many of the garbage cans had litter strewn everywhere. It looked bad and we didn't see anyone rushing to clean it up. It's been many years since we've been there. A worthy visit.

    A walk in nature
    We startled a deer upon entering this exquisite park. Shortly thereafter a peacock flew over our heads. Beautiful garden, animals to observe, lovely walkways. One of our favorite spots!

    Worth the small walk while downtown
    Great park from walking distance. Plants, wild animals. Nice fountains, totems, flowers. Must see while in the city. We saw turtles, ducks, elks, peacocks, etc. Nice rose garden.

    Best part of Victoria
    Sigh, this is one of the loveliest parks in which I have been able to visit, and that's compared to places like St James and Central parks in London and NYC. It's well groomed, beautiful trees, flowers, gardens. Bridges and sculptures, architecture to appreciate, stepping in you immediately feel peaceful and rested even though you are still right in the city. And the wildlife is amazing - saw rabbits, deer, just grazing like they're out in the wild. Just such a wonderful walk and my favorite part of Victoria.

    Beautiful park!
    What a beautiful space! I wish I could have spent more time here. There is a petting zoo, wonderful gardens and the largest totem pole in the world! Definitely worth a stroll, lots of great nature.

    A Must See
    If in Victoria, set aside some time to visit Beacon Hill Park. Great location right near fisherman's wharf. Plenty of hotels nearby. You can just stroll by the numerous ponds and gardens or take a horse drawn tour. Lots of food choices within minutes......well worth it!

    A place of peace
    This is the first place I bring my guests when they stay with me in Victoria. It's a great location for a picnic, a stroll amongst a variety of mature trees and beautifully maintained gardens, a silent meditation beside tranquil ponds, stream side or fountains. The rare Garry Oak can be found here, there are concerts at the small stage, birdlife aplenty and a petting zoo nearby. Free parking is available and a small splash area for kids.

Beautiful and well maintained gardens, water areas and trails. It was very wet when we went, so we stayed on the main paths, but there are many trail options. Stunning trees, floral displays and fauna all over. Such a peaceful and relaxing oasis in Victoria.

This is a large well-maintained park in the heart of Victoria. A great place to take the family for a day's outing, the children can run around or play in the children's play area. Plenty of places to sit on the sun or under the shade of a tree. A very beautiful park.

We went here twice in a couple days. It was beautiful! The trees, the flowers, the water features, the peacocks roaming around, and we even saw turtles catching some sun on a log!
