Beacon Hill Park, Victoria Reviews
This is a great spot to go for a stroll right in the heart of Victoria. Whether you’re a local or just visiting beautiful Victoria you need to take the time to go and check out this park. Have some fun and try and find the moss lady. Many have not found her can you?? So much to see at different times of the year from Cherry blossoms to turtles and peacocks you will see some many different and beautiful things in the park.
Beacon Hill Park is the biggest park with in Victoria and it has a little petting zoo with in it. The petting zoo is only open during summer and it is run by donations from it's guest. A big band shell where you can hear live music and at the end of summer free movie nights. Two water parks for childern to enjoy, plus a big third play ground off of Cook street that has a zip line. A mini putting green to top everything off. Just a great family park and so beautiful!
We love this place. It's a huge park with a lot to see and a lot of places where you can escape from the world and meditate yourself to enlightenment, if that's your thing. Did I mention there are also wild Peacocks roaming about? There's a little something for the entire family here and we recommend it.
So much to do here at the Park! All seasons! We go to the park all the time. Feeding the duckies with bird seeds (remember no bread!! ).. admiring the flowers in warmer seasons, strolling through the winding paths, play at the playground (which is conveniently located close to the washrooms), visiting the animals at the petting zoo.... There are many animals roaming freely in the park area: peacocks, duckies, blue herons, turtles, pigeons etc etc. So blessed to have an amazing urban park in the city!
This park is a marvel in any season. I love how you can walk around and experience so many different types of landscapes. Traditional English knot gardens are right along side ancient cedars, Douglas fir and Gary oak meadows. There are play areas and an amazing petting zoo for the kids! There's even a painted turtle population in the pond. Truly a destination for the nature lover. (I have posted pics from a March trip, then August.)
