As the gateway between the burgeoning Western Communities and Victoria’s downtown core, View Royal has managed to maintain its own character. A vibrant, green community, View Royal boasts numerous parks, trails, and green spaces. It is also home to many attractions that draw its city-bound neighbours to visit. The wildly popular Thetis Lake is a spectacularly untamed spot for swimming, hiking, or sunbathing. West Shore Parks and Recreation is home to Juan De Fuca Recreation Center, Bear Mountain Arena and the WildPlay treetop zip lines and obstacle courses. It also has fantastic views of the Esquimalt Harbour and surrounding Salish Sea from its grounds. View Royal is a fun and active community where the whole family can feel at home.
