This is a good urban park to walk in & enjoy. The terrains vary & there are beautiful natural areas as well as a large pond or two & ducks & planted gardens. We enjoyed seeing turtles (maybe 12 or more of them) perched on a log all in a row.

We've visited Victoria about 7 times over the years, but never walked through this lovely little park. It has surprising little water features with ducks and geese, fountains and foliage. A pleasant place to relax and while away an hour or an afternoon. There's even a stage for events, deep in the park. Pleasant and relaxing. Good for kids and... More

When my husband and I visited this park is was early evening (around 5 or 6pm) and it was a little sketchy. Lots of homeless people and groups of teenagers. We walked around for a bit and then left but we did find the grounds had some beautiful flowers and some well maintained trails.

A large park with an incredible variety of trees and plants. We saw peacocks, herons, and a lot of variety. Cedar trees, Arbutus trees, old trees, young trees, flowers, etc etc. Walk through the park and also go to the waterfront and walk on the rocks by the water. Exceeded our expectations.

The plants and shrubs are very pretty to go and see, especially in the sun. With a walk not incredibly far, it's worth taking an hour or two out of your day to do. Also the path leads into victoria centre which isn't far either

You know when you live somewhere you tend to take all it has to offer for granted. We don't go to Beacon Hill Park very often as we don't live downtown but we did go approximately three weeks ago and it was stunning. The fact that it is accessible to everyone at no cost is lovely. The beautiful flower beds,... More

The park is large enough... More
