This beautiful site, easily accessible from Victoria by car, bus or bicycle, was the perfect spot to spend the afternoon in Victoria’s heat wave. There is no entry cost and parking is a reasonable 2.50 for the day. Overflow parking is just down the road...More

This is a beautiful park with a lower and upper lake, a few small beaches, and hiking trails both around the lake and into the surrounding wilderness. The 50 bus (you can catch this in downtown Victoria near the Parliament building) will let you out...More

This lake is beautiful with a easy to moderate trail that goes all the way around. Perfect for a warm sunny day.

Great place to take children to go swimming. Water was clean and warm enough for my 2 year old to play in at 9am. Washrooms and change rooms were clean.

Thetis is a lovely park, not far from downtown Victoria, yet out in nature. The walking trails are delightful and the children love the water activities. It's a great place for a day out, with a picnic lunch. Not to be missed.

My wife hiked here lots in her younger days, and She brought me here to show me around. We brought our dog and had a lovely walk around the lake.

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 the lake, or join...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 and then drops off deep...More
