We just made a short stop here. It is a pretty, wooded area. There was a cute playground, spots for swimming, horse back riding, or just relaxing. Bathrooms are easily accessible.

This well-used park is popular with all kinds of people: joggers, walkers, picnics, swimmers, rowers, dog-walkers, horse-riders, some cyclists too. And no wonder: it's easy to get to, there's lots of parking, it's clean, the lake is always lovely. There are trails on the east side but there you're alongside the highway.

2 years in a row I have come for a race here and am blown away by the beauty of this area. The water is warm (but weedy) the grass is green and the paths are covered and beautiful for walking. Plus it's mainly dog friendly throughout. Well worth a wander

Beaver lake trails are beautiful. It is quit and peaceful spot to enjoy for free. Where can you take your dogs or just yourself and feel miles away from everything. Go and enjoy the beauty.

This is a nice place to come for a walk or jog around the lake. Parts of it run near Highway 17, so you can hear the traffic, but never really see it. Instead, you can stroll along a serene lake and pathway and soak in the atmosphere. This is only minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Victoria... More

Came here in 2010, was beautiful, so peaceful, clean, the lake was wonderful, lovely long walk around the whole place. Plenty of places to sit and relax. It was a joy to visit and live near it for a while.
