My favorite activity to do in this park is going for a trail ride. Makes for an awesome ride! Not the best for swimming but the lakes are great to look at.

I go there often with dogs and sometimes meet friends with dogs there for a walk. It's one of the few places that there are generally no leash restrictions except of course, boring old June to Sept when they have to be on leash at the main beach at Beaver. Beware though, there are lots of runners at Beaver or Elk Lane and they won't slow down, even when there are a group of dogs ahead. You might be lucky if they call out and let you know they are coming up behind you but lots of them are too rude to bother. There are quite a few horse riders too so be aware if your dog is unused to horses, or likes to chase fast moving things (runners).

It will take us 3-4 hours to walk both lakes. Joggers will do it in less. Dogs. horses, strollers, fishermen, Olympic rowers and many Canadian Geese. Watch out when it;s windy as many tree branches will fall. Saanich have a strawberry festival in the summer. Great place to walk the dog.

this place is serene , if you can get away from traffic noise, but truly beautiful, can swim,fish, canoe, kayak, jog or walk around it, if you drive in farther is quieter. Washrooms are nearest first parking lot. there is sand also.

Great place to take the whole family for a picnic and a swim.
Bring your own lunch or go to one of the many place to pick up lunch located near by.
