Bring Your Picnic Basket and Ideas for How to Improve Vic West Park

 

Share Your Ideas About Improvements to Vic West Park

Picnics are a great way to enjoy parks, so what better way than a community picnic to bring people together to help design improvements to Vic West Park.  Victoria residents are invited to an ‘Ideas Picnic’ on Tuesday to share their thoughts about improvements that can be made next year.

Vic West Park is the second largest park in the Victoria West neighbourhood and the eighth largest in the City. It can be accessed from Bay Street, Wilson Street and Esquimalt Road. The park was first established in 1921 and has seen many improvements since then to address the changing needs of local residents. The park currently offers a multi-use sports field for baseball and soccer, a skate park, a lawn bowling club, a basketball court, a leash-optional area, a playground, two parking areas and a public washroom.
