Rom Knott Park

Rom Knott Park is in the municipality of Central Saanich, one of the thirteen which form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, this park is located conveniently close to all amenities. Rom Knott Park is the local baseball field with bleachers. The park trees include Garry oak trees, ornament plum trees and landscaped plantings. The family and friends of Mr. Rom Knott, whom was a resident of the area that coached ball and enjoyed the outdoors, purchased the land in his memory in nineteen sixty four. It was later donated to the municipality as a municipal park. The baseball field is fenced with corrugated wire fencing along its perimeter. Pioneer Park which hosts the community center is nearby and can be access with the concrete foot path. There is a concession and storage building near the ball field. The pathway connects to Lucille Drive. For the youngsters there are a couple of play grounds that recognize Mr. Stan Bickford, a resident of the area. This is a good place to walk in your backyard.
