Matheson Lake Regional Park in Victoria BC

by Geoff McLean on December 19, 2012

Matheson Lake Regional Park is a gorgeous little spot where people who are living in Victoria can enjoy swimming, fishing and hiking.  The lake is stocked with catchable sized rainbow trout and there are kilometres of scenic trails including the Galloping Goose Trail which runs through the park.

A sandy beach offers the perfect spot for a dip on a hot summer day or a family picnic.  Anglers may use motorized boats to pursue their catch as long as they have electric motors.  The trails are only moderately challenging and provide excellent and very picturesque views, perfect for photographers and other artists!

How to Get to Matheson Lake Regional Park

Take the Trans-Canada Highway from Victoria, and take the #10 exit (Colwood exit).  Stay on  the Old Island Highway as it turns into Sooke Road, then turn left onto Happy Valley Road. Turn right on Rocky Point Road and another right on Matheson Lake Park Road, which leads to the park entrance. It takes about 35 minutes driving time from Victoria.

Matheson Lake Regional Park is open from sunrise to sunset every day.  CRD Regional Parks Volunteer Services is looking for volunteers who can help with opening and closing the park gates, click here to learn more about the program.
