Clawthorpe Park

Clawthorpe Park is in Victoria, B.C., one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Clawthorpe Park is a great place to wear out some energetic kids before heading into Hillside Mall for shopping and eating. There is plenty of space to stretch your legs in the nearly half a hectare parkland that is part of Victoria’s outdoor spaces. The play equipment includes toddler friendly swings, monkey bars and swing rings. The spiral slide starts from the second story of the play set that has climbing ladders and a tunnel. Come and explore the large grass cover area and the enjoy the large willow trees. You really must take a look at this park. There are several benches and picnic tables. The park is fenced along North Dairy Road. Clawthorpe Park is close to Oswald Park. Browning Park is also nearby and a stroll toward Browning Park will cross Bowker Creek, a small urban creek that flows into the Salish Sea near Willows Beach and Oak Bay.
