This large urban park is a short walk from the Empress Hotel/inner harbour. The gardens in the summer were stunning and extensive. The view from the 'beacon' out over the Pacific is glorious. All free. Enjoy.

This park is large and has lots of pathways for walking and enjoying the peace away from the city for a while. The children's petting zoo was a fun stop even for adults.

Arrived from a week of national park hopping and after a couple of hours in the city of Victoria felt the need to go back in nature before my flight. Great place and well organized.

Overnight parking is not permitted in the Park. There is a general provision in the Victoria By-Laws that also limits parking in parks to 3.5 hours during the day. I doubt if this is enforced in Beacon Hill though.
