Matheson Lake Regional Park in Metchosin in the Western Communities of Greater Victoria is set at the foot of Mount Matheson, in a steep-sided, heavily forested environment.

Matheson Lake Regional Park covers 162 hectares and features Matheson Lake, a recreational area providing swimming and fishing opportunities. The park is a paddling destination for those seeking a serene, cloistered environment.

Matheson Trail, a well-maintained 3-km hiking and walking trail loops around Matheson Park. On a hot summer day, Matheson Lake is a perfect place to enjoy a refreshing dip and a picnic at the sandy beach area.

The 46-kilometre multi-use Galloping Goose Regional Trail passes through Matheson Lake Park, connecting the park to the adjacent Roche Cove Regional Park.

Hikers, cyclists, joggers and horse riders share the trail, affectionately referred to as The Goose.

Park facilities include parking, pit toilets and a roped-off beach for swimming. Camping in Matheson Lake Regional Park and the adjacent Roche Cove Regional Park is not permitted.

From Sooke Road, turn left on Happy Valley Road, then right on Rocky Point Road, and right again on Matheson Lake Park Road, which leads to the park entrance.
