The District of Saanich is the largest of the core municipalities that comprise Greater Victoria on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Saanich has a rural feel with farms and wineries in close proximity to the Provincial Capital of Victoria so you can enjoy the amenities of a larger city. Surrounded by the ocean and the many lakes the physical setting is very much influenced by water. Residents, visitors and those of you thinking of moving to Saanich will find many parks to enjoy in the area. 16 of those parks have beach access to lakes or the ocean.
 
Victoria is a very active city and this offers many opportunities to participate in swimming, paddle boarding, sailing, fishing and other water activities. They range from Gordon Head with five Parks with public beach access to the Tillucum and Cadboro Bay neighborhood tied with 3 each.
 
Gordon Head is home to the University of Victoria and has several parks in the immediate area including Arbutus Cove Park, Balmacarra, Glencoe Cove-Kwatsech Hollydene and Mount Douglas Parks.
