It is found on a small one tenth of a hectare area in the James Bay neighborhood of Victoria, B.C. The land is subdivided into fifty-four plots for community use and is located behind the James Bay Athletic Association. It is also across the alley from the sports fields that form MacDonald Park. The gardens have a huge variety of plants, from beds with cut flowers to a variety of harvestable plants. This is an interesting place to explore in this seaside neighborhood. There are two playgrounds within an easy walk. Earnest Todd Parks is a couple of houses southwest along Montreal Street.
