Beacon Hill Park

Douglas Street, Victoria, V8V 4Z8

The Basics

At 200 acres (75 hectares), this massive green space is an important part of the Victorian landscape, stretching almost from the Inner Harbour all the way to the Strait of San Juan de Fuca. It is full of places to play and explore, or just to sit and relax in the tranquil garden areas.

To maximize your time and orient yourself in the expansive park, a tour that includes a stop at Beacon Hill Park is the best way to visit. Many visitors love the charm of a horse-drawn carriage ride, or the pleasure of a bike tour or pedicab ride, all of which enable you see more of the area in less time than walking. City tours of Victoria generally make time to give visitors a chance to experience this lovely urban escape.

When to Get There

With Victoria’s mild climate, you can visit the park year-round. Peak season is in summer, when the flowers are in bloom and all the attractions are open. In the cooler months the water features are closed and the blooms are dormant, although a winter walk or ride through the park is still enjoyable.
