We are across the road from Beacon Hill Park, renowned for its colourful gardens, petting zoo, ponds, outdoor concerts, horse and buggy rides, and walking trails. The adjacent Niagara Road is home to an area known as “the Village,” which has charming boutiques and restaurants, as well as a grocery store and pharmacy. You’re a short walk from the waterfront Dallas Road with its newly installed dedicated paved walkways that extend west to the Breakwater Lighthouse, a popular destination. Many of our residents join us from the neighbourhoods of James Bay, Oak Bay and Fairfield.
