Clover Point Park

“Dallas Road in Victoria is a scenic costline drive that begins near Fishermen’s Wharf and winds its way south past Ogden Point and east through Holland Point Park, Beacon Hill Park, Clover Point Park and Ross Bay. These are all locations that are, or will be, featured on this site.

Wind-swept Clover Point is the starting point for a walk along the Ross Bay sea wall – just under three kilometers return (under two miles). This is a popular site for hang-gliding, wind-surfing, and wave-watching – winter storms are often spectacular – but it can be quite and serene as well.

As an alternative to the return trip via the sea wall, cross Dallas Road for access to the historic Ross Bay Cemetery; walk back through the cemetery and along some of the pretty neighbouring streets.”

Widely recognized as “The Best Place to View the City”, the summit viewpoints provide an excellent panorama of Greater Victoria and the surrounding region.”
