Victoria and Vancouver Island Sights


Beacon Hill Park

Beacon Hill Park Review

This 154-acre park links downtown Victoria to the waterfront. Its rambling lawns overlook the Pacific Ocean, the Olympic Mountains, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Kite-fliers, hang gliders, and dog walkers are numerous. Take your photo at the Mile 0 marker of the Trans Canada Highway. Beacon Hill includes ponds where you can feed ducks, jogging and walking paths, flowers and gardens, a cricket pitch, and a petting zoo (open daily 10–5). There's live music in the bandshell on summer evenings, and on Saturday nights in August the Victoria Film Festival screens free movies.
