Great Park!

My kids and I truly enjoyed our time at this park. There are beautiful trees for shade, a playground area and petting zoo. A must do if traveling with kids.

I've been taking my kids here since they were babies! We love visiting the petting zoo and going early to catch the goat stampede. Definitely worth a visit

Need to slow it down a bit? Need somewhere to connect with someone special so you can share your thoughts? Want a place to park it and have a family break? Be surrounded with such pretty sites, fountains, paths and shaded gardens will take that tension quickly away. Enjoy

Beacon Hill park offers a variety of walking trails beautifully landscaped. There are playgrounds and a petting zoo for the kids. There is also an 18 hole putting golf course there. Anyone visiting Victoria must take advantage of this.

I always take visitors here - there is a children's petting zoo (that adults also tend to love!), ponds to watch birds in, gorgeous flower gardens, and great picnic spots.

I love walking about the park with or without the grandchildren. This is a peaceful place sans the children's play area. Kids will enjoy the petting zoo. Sit or stroll. Herons are in their rooks; ducks and peacocks wander about the place. It is a short walk from the harbour.

I have been going to the park frequently in the 25+ years I have lived in the Greater Victoria area. It is beautiful and there are quiet, serene areas that you can relax in. There is a lot of creatures to see such as squirrels and all types of birds.

Beacon Hill is a beautifully maintained park, which extends all the way to the waterfront. It's a great place to enjoy an afternoon wandering, reading, or having a picnic. The petting zoo is definitely a highlight - there are peacocks wandering around and a pen where you can hang out with the baby goats. Kids (and young at heart) will... More

The first time I saw Beacon Hill Park was 1976. I was astounded at the beauty then as I am today. There is a serenity about the park that all ages can feel and enjoy.. In the middle of a city it is rare to find such a gem as Beacon Hill Park.
