The Sooke Potholes Regional Park is a 55 hectare (136 acre) park along the Sooke River in British Columbia, known for its rocky pools and canyon-like features. It is located near Sooke, British Columbia and it is a popular destination for hiking and swimming.

The Land Conservancy and the Capital Regional District purchased the Sooke Potholes property from a private owner in 2005 and turned it into a regional park.

This park is a provincial/regional park hybrid.

The Sooke Flowline constructed in 1915 snakes through the nearby hills around the Sooke Potholes and travels all the way to the Humpback Reservoir near Mt. Wells Regional Park. It can be found east of the Sooke River.

Transportation[edit]

Access to the Galloping Goose Regional Trail is near to the park.
