Beautiful and peaceful. Great place to sit and relax watching the ducks and peacocks. Felt like I was away from the city but in the city.

A must stop when touring the city of Victoria. Mile 0 and Terry Fox statue are here. There were lovely tulips in bloom when we were there. A great photo op stop!

This is a large and beautiful park that's great for walking around, enjoying the fresh air and taking pictures. There is also a farm inside for the kids to see and pet the animals. We enjoyed our trip here.

A short 10 minute walk from the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Lots of lakes/ponds with many families of ducks. It also contains the tallest totem pole in Canada. The southern point has views of the Olympic Mountains across the river to Washington USA. Very dog friendly area and some lovely dogs and owners.

The ducks are great to watch, as well as turtles suntanning on the large log in the pond. Great views of heron sitting on their nests. The flora there is beautiful.

This is a great place to take lots of pictures, especially in the spring and summer. There is a lot of places to walk around, flowers, park & water park, petting zoo and more! I love taking my boys here to run around and then have a picnic.

This old park has good bones. We found in the spring that several homeless are sleeping in the park..Many of the flowers were not in bloom at this time. We have been there when the park is in bloom in the summer and it is busy with people and the children's petting zoo. Lots of walking paths.

We had a great time here with our niece and her son. We found it to be very clean with lots of staff on hand to answer questions and keeping up with the animals droppings. We had so much fun in the goat pen. Especially watching the little ones jumping all over the place! We timed things right and were... More

Awesome place, with lots to see, we took a visiting family member for a walk through this park, and flowers were amazing, and all the little ducklings were so sweet. A couple of peacocks were walking about the grounds.
