Rayn Or Shine Garden

Rayn Or Shine Garden is in the seaside city of Victoria, one of  thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. An allotment garden in the Vic West community, Rayn Or Shine has nine raised beds. It also has several community or common beds and planters for perennial fruits and veggies. The garden is a wonderful place to rest with a very unique bench and picnic tables. This is a great place to include in your walk around the neighborhood of Victoria West and Banfield Park.
