Originally the territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations, to later becoming the centre of Victoria’s industrial activity, Vic West has a rich and unique character. With charming residential neighbourhoods, immediate access to the Gorge Waterway, and some of the most diverse demographics in the Capital Regional District, the area is becoming a hotspot for growth in the coming years.
Numerous small parks, plenty of options for recreational activity, and a new bridge which will provide increased access to the downtown commercial core make the neighbourhood ideal for young families, working professionals, and retirees alike. Active and vocal community organizations work tirelessly to create vitality through festivals, events, and neighbourhood upkeep.
