Nothing more beautiful than walking/jogging around the 10km trail around Elk/Beaver Lake. Watch the wildlife - herons, ducks, geese and watch the rowers practicing their strokes on the Lake. The Canadian Men's and Women's Rowers train here so inspiring to watch them training hard.

This lake and park is outside of Victoria and you would need a car or take a bus to get there. It is the Canadian National Team Rowing Centre. Great swimming in the summer.
