The beautifully landscaped city park is a great place to spend some time, have a picnic or watch some cricket. The walking paths with bridges, ponds and flowers are very enjoyable. There are many ducks and birds. It is possible to sit and relax after a long walk.

For a relax park setting in Victoria, Beacon Hill Park will be your best bet. I love the many stoned paths that are lined with flowers and other indigenous plants. There are lots of birds here too, such as eagles, herons and ducks. The highlight is at the top of the hill, where you can see a great panoramic view... More

The park has playgrounds, some ponds were you can see swans and ducks swim around, lots of grassy areas to sit and have a picnic, beautiful flowers and trees in gardens where you can wander around in. There is also a petting zoo and nearby peacocks frolic around. BTW, it is free for the public!

Nice park for a stroll. Near the RBC Museum. There is a petting zoo at the center, as well as a band shell. We heard live music, and hung out with a miniature horse! Good time!
