Victoria police have given the all clear after disposing of a suspicious package left in a Victoria park on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers were called to Victoria West Park at approximately 1 p.m. and located the package near the dog park. Working with the emergency response team, they blocked off the park and determined the contents of the package to be several propane tanks, a large bottle of bodily fluids and a note including a derogatory remark toward bylaw staff.
