Waterview Properties in Victoria BC
Victoria is a unique city in North America. While our community looks out on the Pacific Ocean on every side, residents are also lucky to enjoy green and wild space in almost every neighbourhood.
Besides 72 parks located across the region, Victoria has also carefully preserved farmland and other green spaces.
All of this natural beauty is supported by a network of lakes and waterways that provide recreation opportunities for everyone.
Many neighbourhoods look enjoy water views of the lakes hidden in the greenways and rural areas of the region.
The east side of Cordova Ridge on the Saanich Peninsula overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Haro Strait. The west side of Cordova Ridge enjoys fine views of Elk Lake.
In summer, Elk Lake is popular with swimmers and boaters, and is home to Canada’s Olympic rowing team. In the fall the woods that line the shores of the lake turn into a landscape of magnificent colours. Search for listings.
