Beacon Hill Park, Victoria

#1 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Vancouver Island
Neighborhood Nature / Park
Stroll on woodland and shoreline trails, or hop on a horse-drawn carriage and meander around the many ponds and landscaped gardens at Beacon Hill Park. The park is home to raccoons, squirrels, river otters, swans, turtles, ducks, and geese, but also to some notable manmade structures. See what was once the world's tallest totem pole carved by Kwakwaka'wakw artisan Mungo Martin in 1956, which is nearly 39 m (127 ft) high. Notice how each of the benches is dedicated to someone loved and dearly remembered. The park also features two playgrounds, a waterpark, playing fields, and tennis courts. Golf enthusiasts can try their putting skills on a putting green. Children will love the petting zoo, where they can touch baby goats. From June to September, visitors of all ages can enjoy concerts on the stage in the middle of the park. A visit to Beacon Hill Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Victoria tourist route planner to plot your vacation.
