Feature Community: Victoria BC’s Victoria West Neighbourhood
So, you have decided that Victoria is where you would like to move and now all you need to figure out is… where? Victoria is a beautiful city that is situated right on the coast and is known for beautiful waterfront views and lush green spaces. But if you are looking for a neighbourhood that will provide you with everything, from those beautiful lookouts, to the great access of recreational opportunities, then Victoria West is where you belong! This breathtaking neighbourhood has access to a bit of everything for everyone. Take a look at what Victoria West has to offer you!
Where most neighbourhoods in Victoria have some access to the shore, the community of Victoria West is completely surrounded by these water views. The scenic neighbourhood looks out onto boats on the harbour, and there is always a bustle of activity on the water. But water is not the only view you will have, Victoria West is filled with luscious green spaces! If you like to stay active in nature, this neighbourhood is home to a number of different parks, like the Victoria West Park, Raynor Park, and the expansive Banfield Park. It is the Banfield Park that is one of the more popular green spaces that features stunning trails (such as the Galloping Goose Trail) that go along the shore and through the park.
If outdoor recreation isn’t your style, there is a Goodlife Fitness, the Wurtele Arena, Naden Athletic Centre, and other indoor fitness options available. A wide variety of programs are also available at the Victoria West Community Association for both children and adults. In addition to these services, the community has a lot to offer for every personality, age, and lifestyle. Check out the following amenities located in the community:
