The head of Government House says it had no choice but to close the gates to its grounds after large groups of people held birthday parties and yoga ­sessions on the property and even brought in fire pits and barbecues.


almost sure those were not serious ongoing issues.

They have full time security there as well as a large staff. They more than any other park can easily supervisee any rare problems. Lazy and useless. Lots of public money spend on a group of people that dont feel they have to help out.

That's crazy about Government House. Why do some folks have to ruin things for the rest of us? We had been walking there frequently since we can't walk in Beacon Hill. I agree, couldn't security have spotted the barbeques coming in then sent them packing?  Close off the gazebo somehow? Hope it reopens soon.

🔹CRD Regional Parks acquires addition to Mount Work Regional Park🔹

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) has acquired a 12.1 hectare parcel of undeveloped land adjacent to Mount Work Regional Park. The parcel is mainly second growth Douglas fir forest, with intermittent patches of open rock bluffs.

“This addition means we are adding just over 12 hectares of valuable parkland in our community,” said Colin Plant, CRD Board Chair. “This acquisition helps preserve this area for future generations, provides important ecological connectivity and makes a wonderful addition to Mount Work Regional Park.”

The property, located on Ross Durrance Road, connects to the western edge of the park and brings Mount Work Regional Park to 742.1 hectares. Mount Work is one of the largest regional parks and is the dominant hill on the horizon from many vantage points in Saanich, Victoria and the Saanich Peninsula. This popular recreation spot offers a variety of landscapes and activities.
