    This is one of the scenic place in Victoria. The trail is easy walk, you'll lost time just by strolling down the path that's going around the lake. You can find a quiet spot to swim and take a dip in ...  more »

    Thetis Lake and the regional park is beautiful! The trail is a fairly easy walk. The beach is a little small and the "sand" isn't really sand but it's fine. The lake is so cool. Shallow for a few feet...  more »

    The trails are rugged and challenging, great for a good hike or jog. The elevation is not too much for older folks to handle easily. The lake is clean and has ample fish for catching...mostly small mouth bass. The beach is clean and well maintained.

    The park is beautiful, with swimming and kayaking/canoeing locations, significant hiking or jogging trails, and places to simply lay in the sun. Don't expect to find many open level fields for throwing frisbees. Thetis Lake is surrounded by very gentle hilly and rocky terrain that surrounds the lake itself, with significant tree coverage. Great place to visit if you want a walk through nature along a gentle trail, or lay on a smaller beach during summer.

    Dog friendly Park with plenty of hiking and walking trails. Swimming on the main beach or elsewhere along the trails with washrooms and changerooms located at the main beach. There's also a dedicated dog Beach for dog swimming, away from the main public swimming Beach. It is pay parking here - lots of room but it does get busy in the summer.

    Another great park for the Victoria region - nice lakes, kms of easy walking trails, a dog-friendly beach and a beach reserved for humans during the summer. And a bike trail leading right to it from downtown. It's great to be able to choose between the ocean and a lake.

    Beautiful park for an easy hike or run around. Water is lovely to swim in. Often very busy on nice days. Lots of off leash dogs. Upper area of park a bit quieter.
