Explore Sooke: Witty's Lagoon

Witty's Lagoon
This gem in Metchosin offers trails across volcanic cliffs to a scenic waterfall and sandy areas perfect for a day at the beach. Naturalists will be particularly thrilled with the wide range of birds and intertidal life in the park. It caters to a rural crowd with horseback riding possible on the outer north trails of the main portion of the park, while the Tower Point area is a designated equestrian zone. As well there are three official picnic areas, plus access to the beach west of the park, which can make a beach stroll last well beyond the park boundaries. A nature centre at the park entrance has brochures, interpretive displays and volunteer naturalists.
The visual highlight of the park is Sitting Lady Falls, which cascades from Bilston Creek into the lagoon. The salt marsh offers a chance to view bird life drawn to the rich intertidal environment. About 160 bird species have been identified within the park, making it a prime bird-watching area. Tidal pools at Tower Point also make for interesting exploration.
