Bring a picnic and your thoughts on future improvements to Vic West Park

  • Jul. 2, 2015 3:00 p.m.

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, July 7 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.

Details:

What: Share ideas about future improvements to Vic West Park

When: Tuesday, July 7 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Where: Vic West Park, near the playground on Bay Street

Picnic details: A community picnic area will be set up for the evening. Residents are invited to

bring a picnic to enjoy in the park. Ice cream sundaes will be provided, in exchange for ideas.

Human-sized ‘Hamster Balls’ will be available to help get the ideas rolling. 

Residents can also share their ideas by completing an online survey by July 13, tweeting ideas to #vicparks, emailing parks@victoria.ca or by calling 250.361.0600.  All areas of the park are up for discussion. The skate park, playground and leash-optional dog areas have already been identified as needing upgrades.
