East Saanich Neighbourhoods – Broadmead

by Jodi Baker on December 4, 2013

Broadmead is a choice residential neighbourhood in East Saanich, a short drive north on the Pat Bay Highway from Victoria BC.  This planned residential community was designed to respect the area’s natural topography, with homes constructed between mature trees and rocky outcrops. Over 20% of the community is public green space.  Housing in Broadmead includes 1,200 single family homes, 600 strata townhomes and condominiums, 40 co-op residences and a 225-bed multilevel care facility for seniors and veterans.

At the center of Broadmead lies Rithet’s Bog, the last remaining peat bog on the Saanich Peninsula, now a nature sanctuary and the Lochside Regional Trail skirts the eastern border of the community..  The neighbourhood is also very close to Elk/Beaver Lake Park, a popular location for year round recreation, and just across the highway from Saanich Commonwealth Place, for indoor swimming and recreation.

Broadmead Village is the commercial centre of the community, with 40 unique stores in a country village setting, including restaurants, a grocery, liquor outlet, hardware and household goods along with several boutique style shops.Saanich Broadmead Map - Living in Victoria
