Goldstream Provincial Park
With towering trees and cascading waterfalls, Goldstream Provincial Park, located just outside of Victoria, is a sight to behold in the autumn. A meandering river that makes its way through the park is the perfect place to perch and watch the leaves fall around you. Keep your eyes peeled for spawning salmon at this time of year, and if you’re lucky you may even be able to spot a black bear—from a safe distance.
Beacon Hill Park
A 200-acre urban park located in the heart of Victoria, Beacon Hill Park‘s many trees transform into a vibrant array of fall colours. Beacon Hill features several trails that criss-cross the park, with wide grassy areas for an afternoon picnic or a relaxing stop with a book. With native wildflowers, grasslands, and whispering willows, the park offers one of Vancouver Island’s most colourful and easily accessible outdoor landscapes.
