I have lived in Victoria for many years. My friends and I still love to come and shop in Oak Bay and have lunch or coffee.
Usually we take a stroll through the beautiful streets and gardens and have a wonderful time. But I must say, things have definitely changed over the last few years. The beautiful character homes are disappearing we have noticed, as well as their gardens.
Now as a resident of Saanich, I have discovered that we have numerous community groups that meet once a month, representing their neighborhoods and interacting with council.
I have learned that there is a similar community-minded organization in Oak Bay, Oak Bay Watch.
People love the charm of this rare community and I am now watching this group’s website with great interest.
Clearly these people love their community and put a great deal of effort into making sure that critical information is available to everyone.
