Foul play is not suspected in the death of a man who was found deceased in John Phillips Memorial Park in Sooke, police say.

"No foul play is suspected at this time, and the B.C. Coroners Service is investigating," said RCMP Sgt. Annie Linttau.

Sooke RCMP were called around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning to attend the park after receiving a report about a man's body near the pond, which was discovered by a passerby.

The park is a former golf course adjacent to the District of Sooke offices.

Linttau said the exact cause of death and I.D. are part of the current investigation and won't be released.
