Nicest park I've ever visited! So many beautiful flowers and wonderful landscaping. Kids all loved the petting zoo.

Beautiful park to walk through. Close to the Terry Fox statue and mile zero monument. The park has beautiful flowers, trees, ponds and lots of wildlife (peacocks, heron nesting area). The best is the amazing work of art known as the moss lady.

Beacon Hill Park offers wildlife, water, gardens, a putting green, public washrooms, a petting zoo and lots of shady spots for a picnic. 10/10 - and it's free!

Beautiful park, peaceful and serene.
We noticed glorious trees and flowers, a family of baby ducklings, and gorgeous peacocks

I spent several days here in my month long visit to the island. I was able to find quiet benches to sit on, even on the busiest days. So peaceful and restful. Ate my lunch, read my book, watched the ducks and breathed in the clean air among the trees. I have meandered through the whole park a number of times, and there is much to see. The peacocks are exciting of course, as they preen and squawk in their desperate attempt to find a mate. It might be nice to have an educator there, to teach both parents and kids that the animals are living beings who deserve to be left alone. Watched, not touched. Also anyone who throws trash on the ground is just not cool. All in all, this is one of my favorite places in all of Victoria. A treasure.

Explored the park on a slow day. Lots of space, lots of shade, beautiful rose garden, and access to a beach at the south end. Really enjoyed my time there.

We enjoyed the walk through beautiful gardens and trees. We saw lots peacocks about and even heard baby herons way up in the trees in their nests. The only problem is the park is lacking signage so half the time you don't know where you're going and/or what you might be missing.

My spouse and I took a long walk through the park which included idyllic flower gardens, howling herons nesting, and plenty of benches to sit and ponder, converse.

Beautiful scenery; the park grounds are kept in immaculate condition. There is so much to see, you could spend hours wandering and still find more!

The park is beautiful, heron chicks still in nests (near the gazebo) and turtles on the logs bask in the sun. Peaceful and tranquil. Except for the pickle ball court which hopefully finds a new home in another city park.

The Friends of Beacon Hill Park website 'history' section lists the plant biodiversity in the park and the 1800s design for the park for the enjoyment of the public.

Free concerts in the bandshell on weekends.

This is a world class park. Enjoy!
