  • This is a great place to go if you enjoy being outdoors. There is a wonderful trail around the lake that doesn't take long at all to walk. On a hot summer day the lake is a nice place to go for a swimming or hangout at the beach. There is a large parking lot and also a washroom. Not far at all from the city center.
  • Thetis is probably one of the best wilderness parks in Victoria. A gorgeous lake, which is a favourite for swimming in warmer weather, and a beautiful network of trails circling the lake. There is a huge parking lot before actually entering the park. If you're there early or off season there are a couple of other parking areas closer to the lakes for a few cars. Thetis is a favourite for dog walkers as well. The main beach is off limits to our four legged friends during the summer but there is another beach a littler further up the road that is open for dogs. A beautful park to explore!!
  • Love this place for a gentle hike, with different lengths. Great for dogs, kids. Well marked paths and decent swimming/water activities during the warmer months. Also a designated dog swimming area during summer.
  • Went on a walk on a very rainy day hiked around the lower and upper lakes. I was a fantastic time. It's a very low skilled hike. The natural beauty of these lakes is truly breath taking. A fantastic example of West Coast beauty and splendor.
  • This is my favorite walking trail in Victoria. It's cool and shady on hot summer days. The trees offer shelter when walking in the rain too. You can easily customize the difficulty and length of you walk on either side of the road in Francis King Park. The muddy portions have boardwalks that really help too.
