A park that Victorians have insisted stay as natural as possible, with fallen trees decaying into wildlife refuges, and tall grass staying that way. You will have unforgettable glimpses of songbirds as well as the beloved peacocks. It is a beautiful walk.

Overnight parking is not permitted in the Park. There is a general provision in the Victoria By-Laws that also limits parking in parks to 3.5 hours during the day. I doubt if this is enforced in Beacon Hill though.
