Welcome to Broadmead

Broadmead is a unique planned residential community located in a natural West Coast setting. Quiet and forested, Broadmead real estate features some of the most sought-after properties in Victoria.

Broadmead is close to some of the best schools in Victoria, and is within easy walking distance of an excellent shopping centre that serves as a hub for the community.

Forested Seclusion

Originally settled by the Songhees First Nation and later purchased by the Hudson’s Bay Company, the forested area that would one day become Broadmead got its start in the 1880s as a farm. The area was acquired in 1981 by Robert Rithet, a leading Victoria entrepreneur and former mayor. Rithet’s farm was named Broadmead after his beloved prizewinning racehorse.

Today, Broadmead consists of gorgeous homes nestled in a mature forest of Douglas firs and red cedars.

Close to Beaches, Regional Parks and Recreation

Perfect for families or anyone who loves the outdoors, Broadmead is close to a variety of parks and recreation spots.

Rithet’s Bog

Rithet’s Bog is a 42-hectare wetland in central Broadmead. The nature area is the last remaining peat bog on the Saanich Peninsula and is now zoned as a nature sanctuary. The bog features walking trails and provides a place for wildlife and humans alike to rest and recharge.

Mount Doug Park

Wooded Mount Doug Park is just a short trip by car or bicycle from Broadmead. This forested park is perfect for hiking or family picnics.

Cordova Bay

Nearby Cordova Bay boasts a sand and pebble beach that is great for exploring year-round, and is an especially popular spot for swimming and sunbathing on warm summer days.

Elk and Beaver lakes

Close by is one of the largest parks in Greater Victoria, Elk Lake and Beaver Lake. This network of swimming lakes provides opportunities for canoeing and kayaking, as well as fishing. The lakes are ringed by a ten-kilometer trail network popular with joggers, dog walkers and horseback riders.

Saanich Commonwealth Place

Originally constructed in 1993 for the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Saanich Commonwealth Place features a wave pool with water slides, competition-length swim lanes and diving facilities, weight rooms and a training gym, and other amenities.
