Francis/Kings Regional Park is located near Thetis Lake Regional Park – about a 20 minute drive from Victoria. Parking is available and the Elsie King Trail is wheelchair-accessible.

All CRD events run rain or shine so it is recommended to dress for the weather. Pets are not welcome at the event as they can be disruptive.
