Gordon’s Beach Park

Gordon’s Beach Park is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia and is part of the Juan De Fuca Electoral District Parkland. It is located just past Sooke on West Coast Road, with easy vehicle access. Marvel at spectacular sunsets from this pebble and driftwood laden beach. There are a couple of historical society signs at Gordon’ Beach Park. The park is named after the Gordon Family whose family home was at the Hillside Farm. This farm was established in the eighteen sixties by Thomas Tugwell for twenty years before passing the property along to Mr. Ted Gordon. The Gordon Family remained in the area for the next hundred years. They operated a fish trip along the beach. This is a good place to walk in your back yard.

Gordon’s Beach Park can be reached from the Trans Canada Highway. Take the Langford Parkway exit and follow along to reach Sooke Road (Hwy 14). Follow highway 14 as it becomes the West Coast Road.  Continue along as the road and look for Gordon’s Beach on the left near the junction with Otter Point Road. City buses travel along Sooke Road and the West Coast Road infrequently.
