Beacon Hill Reflections
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix. For thousands of years, Beacon Hill has been a place of historical, cultural and sacred significance to the Lekwungen People, now known as Esquimalt Nation and Songhees Nation. Beacon Hill Park was granted in Trust to the City of Victoria, Canada in 1882. Today Beacon Hill Park conserves an abundance of natural features and sensitive ecology (including the rare Garry oak ecosystem). It is one of my favourite places to stroll, sit and relax in Victoria, with its beautiful paths, ponds and flower gardens.
