Oak Bay Community Green Map (2012)

Countless residents of Oak Bay collaborated over the past six years to produce, fund and print the Oak Bay Community Green Map.

The idea of Oak Bay’s own Green Map was envisioned around the time Councillor Pam Copley and Jill Croft attended a Green Mapping Course at Royal Roads. The first of many community outreaches was held at Oak Bay’s Centennial Celebration at Windsor Park in 2006.

The project has two phases—community involvement processes that will result in development of an informational map of the parks and play spaces on the Saanich Peninsula and “Play Days in the Parks” scheduled for spring 2007.
