This beautiful spot has so much to offer from long walks by the water or in the park. A petting zoo, ducks, play ground to flowers, one stop for the whole family.

A beautiful oasis in one the most gracious cities in the world. What a jewel....strolling, cycling, whatever, it is wo worth it. Playgrounds, forests, ponds, petting zoo and all right beside downtown Victoria and the ocean.

We always visit Beacon Hill Park when we are visiting Victoria. It is a peaceful place to walk around with gardens, wilder areas, and ponds. It is well maintained and a nice place to visit

Lisa Helps is destroying the look of this park. It used to have the most flowering shrubs and flower gardens in the city. She has limited access to some of areas of the park for people with disability's to access.

This is a wonderful place to take a stroll along the walkways and enjoy nature at her finest. There is plenty to see and do, lovely benches and it is dog friendly.
