Please join us for a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Cedar Hill Park. The event will take place on Saturday, September 23
from 1:30 - 3 pm in the ball fields area behind the Cedar Hill Rec Centre. The event is free and open to everyone so bring your family and friends for what promises to be a fun and interesting afternoon.
The 50th celebration will include presentations on the history of, and life and work in, the Park as well as music, demonstrations, activities and information booths. To also honour Canada's 150th year since confederation, there will be an all-ages ceramic maple leaf activity and Saanich's Canada 150 tent. Parks and Rec will be providing an update on the Park planning process so far and what they've learned to date through the Ideas Fair and survey. And, yes, there will be a (big!) cake!
Following the afternoon event, FCHP members are invited to our Annual General Meeting and a social gathering from 4 - 6pm at the home of Dennis and Barb Latham. Meet or reconnect with other Friends, hear updates on our activities over the past year and plans for the year ahead, and share your input and feedback.
Cedar Hill Park is our beautiful local public park located at the border between the City of Victoria and the Municipality of Saanich. Please see Our Park here for more information.
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.
