Prospect Lake is an idyllic rural neighbourhood in West Saanich, north of Victoria BC. If you like the idea of living in Victoria, yet don’t want to live in the city, you couldn’t do much better than this. Prospect Lake is pure country living close to town.
The neighbourhood is near the Royal Oak commercial area for shopping and other services and not far from Brentwood Bay, but there is little commercial development within Prospect Lake. There are, however, beautiful rural properties and hobby farms where people enjoy keeping livestock, large gardens and all the benefits of country living.
There are plenty of trails for exercising your horse, riding a bike or taking a hike and of course the lake itself, with a picturesque park and beach area for swimming in the warm months. The Prospect Lake Golf Course is a 9 hole public course overlooking the lake.
The Prospect Lake Community Hall is always busy with local group meetings and community events. This neighbourhood has an active volunteer-run community group, the Prospect Lake District Community Association (PLDCA) which has been operating since 1956.
