We walked through the park on a whim and really enjoyed it. We caught a concert at the stage in the middle of the park. It is so close to downtown and a nice break from the action.

A great place to enjoy the free concerts, crazy goats and a break from the busy tourist packed downtown core. Lots of quiet spots to relax and let the world go by!

The shops and boutiques were interesting but the eye grabbing views of the Inner Harbour, Empress Hotel and Provincial Parliament building are exceptional. However, just behind the museum is Beacon Hill park that offers the tourist lovely trails...More

I didn't see this as a park that went beyond the usual compared to others in the America's or elsewhere. It is nice, but in terms of size, has nothing on Golden Gate Park in SFO and is essentially on par with Portland OR--but I...More

I spent a lovely afternoon wandering around this park. The gardens are beautiful, as are the ponds. The petting zoo is a must for young and old. The rose gardens are amazing, and I highly recommend walking down to the water to watch the dogs...More

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.
