Absolutely fine walking through this large urban park will have you going back for more. Start of Douglas Street entrance, past the ponds, large trees - which house a heron rookery, and head south to the ocean at Dallas Road. This is a good place to watch the ships go by and if you are lucky some ocean creatures.

Beacon hill park is a beautiful place to visit, walk, have your packed lunch, etc. This park is always well maintained in order to keep it so beautiful. The petting zoo may be a little stinky but always fun for the whole family. Just walking through the park is a joy in itself.

lovely little city park for a stroll or picnic. the petting zoo with baby goats is a kids' fave stop! Peacocks, flower gardens, ducks in the pond, heron's nesting, free (low-key) concerts by local musicians in the bandstand... what more could you want?

The entry from Douglas is quite modest, with a simple trail passing over and around glacial boulders. Then, however, the park opens up to play areas, lovely gardens, a zoo and views out over the ocean. Altogether, a terrific experience.

From atop the hill one can see across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Mt. Olympus in Washington state. Definitely a great place to walk and find some quiet. Except for the peacocks...watch your step.

Excellent surroundings for a day of peace and a good place for reflection. Good walkways and well lit - felt very safe walking around by myself.

Nice place for a stroll. Peacocks near the petting zoo area are nice to see :) My only suggestion for an improvement would be to see a little coffee/beverage bar near the building for the petting zoo, it would be nice to stroll with a coffee in hand. You can also get down to the ocean from there, several stairs... More

The park is huge and has a bit of everything - ponds with ducks and turtles, grassy fields overlooking the ocean ready for a picnic, hidden pathways with swallows dancing through the long dry grass. In April or May the fields along Dallas Road are blue with native camas that the First Nations used to harvest for their edible bulbs.... More

I always love walking the dog in beacon hill park. Flowers everywhere. There is a playground for children, a petting zoo, even a water feature for them to play in. It's great to see wildlife, deer, turtles sunning themselves on a log in the pond, many ducks and the occasional deer.
