The well-maintained Gorge waterway is home to new paved walking trails and gardens along the water, as well as plenty of opportunities to watch kayakers, canoeists and stand-up paddleboarders take advantage of the ideal conditions. Craigflower-Kosapsom Park, just across the road, offers a family-friendly beach area and is home to the Craigflower Schoolhouse constructed in 1854, a national historic site. Victoria General Hospital is a short five-minute drive away, and shops and services are also conveniently close by at Tillicum Centre. Getting to and from downtown Victoria is easy with two public transit stops on the property.
