Pay Parking Begins May 1 at Sooke Potholes and Thetis Lake Regional Parks

Apr 25, 2016

Victoria, BC­‑ Pay parking at Sooke Potholes and Thetis Lake Regional Parks is in effect for the summer season from May 1 to September 30. The cost of parking is $2.25 per day, or $20 for a season’s pass. Revenue collected from parking fees helps to offset the costs of park services for visitors.

The CRD recently added a third parking lot to Sooke Potholes Regional Park near the Spring Salmon Place (KWL-UCHUN) Campground. The new parking lot will accommodate up to 56 vehicles.

A seasonal parking pass is valid at both parks and can be purchased from CRD Regional Parks’ headquarters (490 Atkins Avenue, Langford), Robbins Parking (1102 Fort Street, Victoria), the main ticket dispenser at Thetis Lake or the Parking Lot #2 dispenser at Sooke Potholes. Visitors purchasing a pass from CRD Regional Parks’ headquarters or Robbins Parking are also required to purchase a $10 refundable decal deposit.

CRD Regional Parks reminds visitors that Sooke Potholes is open 8am to 9pm and Thetis Lake from sunrise to sunset.
