Knockan Hill Park
Knockan Hill Park straddles the Saanich and View Royal border and marks the transition between the suburbs and some of the region’s residual farmland. There are several Garry oak meadows surrounding the rock outcrops at the top of the hill, while the lower reaches of the park are forested. The Friends of Knockan Hill Park and Saanich Parks organize broom bashes and are also attempting to halt the spread of ivy, holly, daphne and other invasive species in the park. Connected to the park is Stranton Lodge, a heritage cottage whose gardens are being restored in cooperation with the Friends.
