Bodega Ridge Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada. It is on Galiano Island (which lies between Vancouver and Vancouver Island) and comprises 233 hectares. The park's high cliffs are home to bald eagles, peregrine falcons, and turkey vultures.

The park was preserved as a result of a long fund-raising campaign 1991-1995, which eventually gained the support of the Nature Conservancy of Canada. In recent years it has received donations from adjacent landowners, and has nearly doubled in size.
