Nothing more beautiful than walking/jogging around the 10km trail around Elk/Beaver Lake. Watch the wildlife - herons, ducks, geese and watch the rowers practicing their strokes on the Lake. The Canadian Men's and Women's Rowers train here so inspiring to watch them training hard.

This lake and park is outside of Victoria and you would need a car or take a bus to get there. It is the Canadian National Team Rowing Centre. Great swimming in the summer.

We have been to Elk/Beaver Lake quite a few times now, for beautiful walks around the lakes but recently we barbecued in a covered area that contains six (I believe) barbecue pits. The scenery is breathtaking and it is only 20-30 mins. From Downtown by...More

I have run the trails around Beaver and Elk Lakes for years but am now visiting the Beaver Lake park/beach area with my young grandchildren. The climbing equipment is beautifully shaded under trees just steps from the beach. It is a good family activity area.
