Welcome to Gordon Head

Gordon Head is a livable neighbourhood in eastern Saanich that offers real estate near UVic, the ocean, many parks and shopping. This part of Victoria offers easy and direct access to both downtown Victoria as well as Victoria International Airport and BC Ferries on the Saanich Peninsula.

The schools and suburban setting make Gordon Head popular with families. University student renters are a great “mortgage helper” for homeowners in this part of Victoria.

Parkland Surrounded by Sea

The Lekwungen people hunted and gathered here for thousands of years before European contact in the early 1800’s. Later, colonists would farm the region of Victoria now known as Gordon Head until a population boom after World War II saw farmland converted into single-family housing.

Today Gordon Head is a mature neighbourhood of broad, leafy boulevards with many parks, all surrounded by sea.

Gordon Head Recreation Centre

The Gordon Head Recreation Centre lies at the heart of the community. Located at Lambrick Park, the “Rec Centre” features a pool and sauna, a training gym, drop-in sports and even a skate park. The Rec Centre sits at the centre of soccer fields, baseball diamonds and tennis courts. Close by, there are even more soccer fields at Tyndall Park and at the University of Victoria.
