Bordering on Vic West ... 5 minute walk to the serenity of Banfield Park backing onto the Gorge Inlet, leading to the Galloping Goose/Selkirk Trestle walking/bike trail.
The Galloping Goose trail connects to more than 55 kilometres of trails throughout Greater Victoria, including the downtown core, Inner Harbor, shopping, and tourist attractions. If walking or cycling, my home is the same distance to to core of downtown as if you were staying in James Bay area, however, instead of passing by heritage houses, Parliment Buildings, shops etc. your journey is through the Banfield park, down the Galloping Goose trail, past Point Hope Shipyard, and over the Johnston St. bridge.
Buses within one block, connecting to downtown, tourist areas, University of Victoria, and Victoria General Hospital. Bus tickets can be purchased at the corner store in front of the bus stop to town.
