It's easy to forget that you are just about in the downtown part of Victoria. The garden staff do a wonderful job of keeping everything beautiful and clean. Recent changes (on a trial period in 2013) have made the park less accessible to those who can't walk. Parking is far from the paths and flower gardens and waterfalls, so hopefully you can walk without assistance. The children's petting zoo is a great place to visit. There is a 'goat stampede' twice a day as the goats are herded to and from their day place to their night place. There is history attached to the park as well. First Nations people used to set up their homes on the shore for fishing. The park itself was set aside by Sir James Douglas right at the beginning of the city of Victoria and for that I thank him.
