Please join us and other Friends of Cedar Hill Park from 4 - 6 pm on Saturday, September 15 for our Annual General Meeting. Draft agenda here. Please email us for the meeting location: FriendsofCedarHillPark@gmail.com
In the morning, we invite you to join us in cleaning up the area around Kings Pond. We will be working there between 9 am and noon. If you can join us for any or all of that time, we'd love your help. We will provide gloves, tools and refreshments and will be there rain or shine! Everyone welcome!
"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
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.
