Awesome and so peaceful!
Aug. 2020
The Sitting Lady Waterfall and the salt lagoon was the hilight. In fact that was all we had a chance to take in, using the entrance near the Montessori school. It is a huge bunch of trails and we really only experienced about 1/8 of it.

It might be a bit of a challenge for people with any kind of physical handicap as there are stairs, some steep hills, and rocks. But I'm in my 70's and not athletic and I was fine with it.

It's about half a kilometre to the Sitting Lady Waterfall....which is something to behold, even in the middle of summer when it's been a bit dry. But our favourite was probably the lagoon itself.....with a nice bench and it was so very quiet. The sounds of two young girls and a parent coming frolicking in the water on paddle boards and a kayak only added to the delightful tranquility.

Worth exploring
Jun. 2020
First stop was the Parking lot for the Tower Viewpoint: Over some green space with lots of flowers and then it went up towards the viewpoint: with amazing views as well as some huge Garry oaks – this is such a beautiful part of the Shoreline: then we hear some funny noise – and see there on the island in front of us are a lot of seals!! From here we walked along the outside on a teeny tiny path over branches and along the bluffs all the way down to the sand: at the moment it is low tide so there is a lot of sand – you could walk endlessly – it is kind of super cool. We admired and walked along the shoreline until we came to some “natural” stone steps and went back up and back to the motorhome.

Really Good Walking Trail
Dec. 2019
Really nice walking trail where you can take in the Sitting Lady Waterfall, the lagoon and an interesting ramble amongst the trees to get to the beach. Very scenic and quiet. Worth a visit for sure.

Nature, Colorful Trees, Beautiful Waterfall
Oct. 2019 • Couples
We were so excited to visit Victoria and we did hit the main touristy highlights… The harbor, Butchart Gardens, and Chinatown. But, As we are birders we also made it a point to visit Witty’s Regional Park and Esquimalt Lagoon. Witty’s offered a delightful short walk down to a lagoon while passing George out Sitting Lady Waterfalls. We were lucky as there was tons of autumn color.

Enjoyable little trail to the lagoon
Aug. 2019 • Couples
As others have said, it’s a little prehistoric looking in places but a nice enjoyable walk alongside the lagoon to the sea. A small nature centre by car park would be good for the children.

Tower Point in Witty's Lagoon
Aug. 2019
This is an excellent beach area across from Witty's beach. Must easier to access, as parking is only about 500 metres from the beach. Bring binoculars to view the seals on the small island offshore. Great beach for children, and a quiet spot for adults to just kick back. Nice, easy walking area as well.

Fun walk, nice waterfall!

Park is not too large, but great for a walk especially on a nice day. During the spring, the waterfall is beautiful!! A small nature center/restrooms onsite, and plentiful parking. You'll love it!

Beautiful adventure in the woods! Feels primeval... gorgeous sights and sounds. Well sculpted but natural trails. Lots of photo ops. Not for those with mobility issues, fairly good hiking shoes advised. Generally easy hiking, great for children. Lovely beach with picnic tables.

wildlife in beautiful setting
Sep. 2018
Witty's Lagoon and beach has great trails and a wide expanse of sandy beach. It is possible to see numerous varieties of birds as well as seals and sea otters. There are not too many people usually and it is possible to find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy the view.
