In a quiet residential neighborhood of Hillside/Quadra in Victoria, BC, is terrific playground on nearly two hectares of grass covered lands. The playset at Highview Park has slides and swings. There are benches and picnic tables in the park as well as some excellent granite rocks jutting out of the grassy areas. The thirty meter pathway leads to a lovely bench. There are a few Garry oak trees. Blackberry bushes ground near the rocky outcrops and the berries are ripe in late summer. The park is partial fenced. Summit Park is two blocks south along Highview Street and across Finlayson Street. Jackson Street Park and Peacock Hill Park are a couple of blocks north.

Highview Park can be reached from the Trans Canada Highway. Continue along the highway as it becomes Douglas Street. Turn eastward onto Finlayson Street and then north onto Highview Street. The park is at the junction of Highview and Merritt streets. A bus travels along Finlayson Street from downtown toward Hillside Mall.
