This is a great spot for a brisk walk along the shore. There is a small cafe on the park edge and restrooms are also available in the park. This is a relaxing and welcoming place to visit.

Willows beach is a great sandy beach just outside of Victoria BC. My wife and I rode bicycles to Willows beach from downtown Victoria. Be sure to check out Oaks Bay Marina while you are in the area also.
