  "Mile 0"
by sunnywong

This park brings relaxation to Victoria?s downtown area. It is named for the beacons that were lit as a navigation aid. This 75 hectare park has streams, several duck ponds, a cricket field, playgrounds, wading pools, a children?s zoo, and a bandshell. In spring, this park is blanketed by hundreds of thousands of daffodils and blue camas, and over 30,000 plants replanted semi-annually. The Lookout, also known as Victoria?s "Lovers? Lane" has a great view of the Juan de Fuca Strait. At the southwest end of the park where Douglas Street meets Dallas Road is official Mile Zero of the Trans-Canada Highway.

Wander along the pathways and stop in at the childrens? petting zoo (Open 11am).

Address: at Douglas and Dallas Sts.
