New Community Recreation Amenity

The Town of View Royal is pleased to report the recent acquisition of former Provincial Capital Commission land. The Town of View Royal has purchased, for a nominal amount, the 0.938 hectare (approximately 2.3 acre) site known as the “Portage Inlet Linear Connector Park”, linking View Royal's St. Giles Street to Saanich's Portage Road (see land shown in red on the map below).

This property has long been used for recreation as it was a former rest area for travelers on the TransCanada Highway. Currently it serves pedestrians seeking a peaceful walk or some bird watching beside the breath-taking Portage Inlet. The Town of View Royal looks forward to continuing to provide these recreational uses into the future.

If you have any questions, please contact the Town at 250-479-6800 or
