The gardens are large and a mixture of lawns, meadow and landscaped areas. Lovely for a stroll or picnic. It's only a 10 minute walk from the harbour side and well worth it. Lovely lake in the middle with loads of ducks and geese

Beacon hill park is a beautiful park right by the ocean. There's lots to see with beautiful flower gardens and lots of nice walking trails. There are lots of restaurants nearby. Great places to stop for a coffee or a bite to eat.

Response from Larry B | Reviewed this property |
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.
Is the park dog friendly?

Yes , it is dog friendly provided that WOOF is on a lead. Certain areas such as the zoo area do not allow dogs inside that area. A large area , just across from Beacon Hill park ( along side waters edge) is a great area for... More
Does Mayor's Grove still exist in the park? I wrote about it in 1969, don't have the exact location. I recently moved here, just 10 minutes away so I guess I could search!

Well the trees are a little larger since 1969. Not sure if naming post is there. At the North end of the Park (Southgate) by the Ball & Soccer field's.
