Proposed Community Garden in Oaklands Park

The Oaklands Community Association is proposing a community garden to the City of Victoria. After an extensive community consultation process throughout 2016 and in discussion with the City of Victoria, the proposed site is in the Oaklands Park between the baseball diamond and the playground.

The volunteer led community garden in the Oaklands Park will be a beautiful public space where neighbours can get to know each other, where children will cultivate an appreciation for nature’s bounty, and where those without land can grow healthy food.

It is anticipated that a formal proposal will go to the City of Victoria in early June 2017. There will follow an extensive review and consultation process. We hope to receive a License to Occupy by early in 2018.

The garden will be constructed in phases over a three year period. Please read the documents provided here for more information. This video celebrates the role gardens and gardening can play in healthy aging.
