Highrock Park is the highest point of land in Esquimalt. At 71 metres in elevation, it offers 360 degree views of the Capital Region, downtown Victoria, the Sooke Hills and the Olympic Mountains.

This 7.1 hectare park features glaciated knolls, and native plants such as sword ferns, blue camas and dotted among stands of Gary oaks, arbutus and Douglas fir. Nature appreciation, bird watching, hiking and dog walking are the popular activities in this park.

Highrock has also been called Cairn Park, referring to a cairn built on the summit to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the incorporation of the Township of Esquimalt.
