"In a time when, all over the world, we are homogenizing our environments and species, and suppressing their differences, we need to recognize and celebrate the species that exemplify a place and its history. Cedar Hill Park is a Saanich treasure, both typical of past landscapes of southern Vancouver Island, and unique in its location, configuration and particular combination of species, watersheds and history. Its more natural areas with its giant oaks, native shrubs and camas meadows are particularly precious and will be even more so for future generations. Their maintenance should be undertaken with care, understanding and sensitivity, in order to retain and promote as many of the park’s native plants and habitats as possible."
Nancy Turner, 2017

A brief history from First Nations use of the land to recent events is presented on our Park History page here.
The Friends of Cedar Hill Park was formed by neighbours in 2006 to maintain the natural areas of the Park. The “Friends” became a Society in 2014 to expand membership and preservation activities. For more information please see Our Society page here.
