The District of Saanich
Saanich East and Saanich West (population 102,000) is a sprawling
area composed of a number of distinct neighbourhoods.
The eastern side of Saanich is dominated by the University of
Victoria which is very much a part of the local life of the community.
The landscape of Saanich is unique for its ecological diversity
and leisure potential. There are 170 municipal parks, three regional
parks and a cycling network route to see and explore. Saanich has
more parks per capita than any other municipality in B.C. There
are several excellent golf courses in Saanich: Blenkinsop Valley,
Cedar Hill, Cordova Bay and Prospect Lake golf courses.
Saanich's distinct neighbourhoods include the following:
GORDON HEAD, a solidly upper middle class family area with several
shopping malls, restaurants and movie theatres within a short driving
HIGH QUADRA overlooking Blenkinsop Valley.
BROADMEAD with imaginative West Coast architecture.
CORDOVA BAY perched along the seaside; a mixture of cottages,
small farms, sizable family homes and new subdivisions.
