Saanich East

View from Cordova Bay

The University of Victoria is a part of the local life of the community of East Saanich.

An expansive cycling network makes it easy to get around and explore the distinct neighbourhoods which include: Gordon Head, also a upper middle class family area; High Quadra, overlooking the Blenkinsop Valley; Broadmead, an area littered with imaginative West Coast architecture; and Cordova Bay, a community perched along the seaside with a mixture of cottages, small farms, sizable family homes.
