Loved Elk/Beaver Lake!
Jul 2021
Beautiful park, great for long walks and much much more! Visited twice during July, great weather, and really enjoyed our long walk along one side of the lake(s). Elk is the larger lake, and Beaver is the smaller (but connected) one. Saw lots of folks out walking, swimming, picnicking and more while there. We'll be back!

Lovely park
Feb 2020
This park has lovely walking paths, lots of birds. Watched rowing teams on the lake. Restrooms are nice, benches, picnic tables. It was fun to watch people bringing their dogs to swim in the lake. It was a birder's paradise.

the best place to walk with dogs
Feb 2020
as soon as I drive into the parking lot, i feel my stress leaving. I enjoy being in nature just moments away from civilization. And it is the best place to meet dogs of all types.

A great place ot enjoy a walk and views
Sep 2019
The trail around Elk Lake is around 10 KM.
The water sports you can enjoy on the Lake itself are very good.

Lovely park
Sep 2019 • Solo
Near the city and just off the highway, this peaceful park has a 10 K trail around it with many branches. Several beaches and at least 2 boat ramps. There are 3 main parking lots plus at least one other small one on the west side.

Easy hike
Aug 2019 • Couples
What a beautiful place to walk; among the trees, flat pathway, easy for people of all ages and abilities. It’s dog friendly. There are porta-potties available until the permanent bathrooms are finished being constructed. There are a lot of parking areas. There are open green areas for outdoor games. There are some covered shelters with picnic tables.

A wonderful find, great for cyclists
Aug 2019 • Couples
My wife and I were on a cycling trip from Victoria to Brentwood Bay. We decided to detour to Elk Lake where we found a nice wide path around the lake that we could easily cycle. This was a much better way than to cycle on the roads.

We also stopped at a beach where people launch small boats. It was a nice swimming spot to cool off. The other beach is much larger and busier and is located next to the main road.

We exited the park and follows gorgeous rural roads with farms to Brentwood Bay.

Highly recommend for a walk, cycle or swim, close to Victoria.

Swim, picnic, boat or hike
Jul 2019
There are beaches for swimming with change rooms, tables or grassy areas to picnic, ramps to launch boats or paddle vessels and a lovely 10k trail around both lakes (with side trails if you want to make your walk longer). Good for a hot day, as at least 1/2 is in the shade. Washrooms are available along the route, but take your own water bottle.

Lovely flat 10K walk with so much nature to enjoy
Apr 2019
Went to Elk/Beaver Lake as we hadn't been there for a few years. Currently there is no blue/green algae warning, so was fine for our dog. It was a really enjoyable walk with a few old buildings near the trail, as well as a couple of beautiful properties and of course, the view of the lake was amazing.
