These fields are used by the Greater Victoria Mixed Slo-pitch Association and their website has further information. No dogs allowed.

He invested in the Hudson Bay Company and negotiated the merger with the Northwest Company in eighteen twenty one. Rockcrest Nature Area, Lugrin Park, Wurtele Park, God’s Acre Cemetery Green Space and Colville Field Park are nearby.
